Passengers have faced delays after Leicester railway station was struck by lightning on Friday morning.
Passengers had to evacuate Leicester railway station
The fire alarm was triggered after one of the buildings at the London Road station was hit during a storm.
The problem temporarily hit Midland Mainline (MML) and Central Trains services passing through Leicester.
Emma Knight from MML said: "We managed to evacuate it quite quickly. Our staff will have kept people in touch with what was happening."
She said the station was fully in use and services returned to normal within minutes.
About 150 people were thought to have been in the station ahead of the evacuation.
