THE young woman who managed to capture a dramatic picture and video of lightning hitting the Spinnaker Tower has admitted it was quite a scary sight to behold.
Lizzie Tubb, who lives in central Gosport, caught on camera lightning bolts striking the famous Portsmouth landmark during Tuesday night’s storm.
Miss Tubb’s picture was uploaded to Twitter by BBC South.
She was in her bedroom when she noticed the flash from the first of four bouts of lightning to strike the Spinnaker Tower, at around 11pm.
Miss Tubb said: ‘I was quite scared of the lightning strike - it was quite a horrible thunder storm.
‘I was not expecting the lightning to hit four times. I had a pretty clear view of it.
‘It was amazing, and pretty cool.’
