Mark Darbyshire filmed some amazing lightning yesterday evening in Riccarton, Christchurch as the thunderstorm passed over.
There are two clips, the first is a shorter version with clips of lightning edited together. The second below shows a longer clip of the storm rolling in over a 20 minute period.
Thanks Mark for sending the links through!
