Two houses damaged by lightning
Two houses in the Black Country have been severely damaged by fire after they were struck by lightning.

Five crews were called to a row of five terraced houses in Turnham Walk, Dunstall, Wolverhampton, at about 1630 BST on Thursday.

The roofs of two homes in the middle of the row caught fire.

Firefighters managed to prevent the blaze from spreading to the other houses on the terrace before bringing the blaze under control.
