Hundreds of homes have been affected by flash flooding and lightning strikes during heavy storms in West Yorkshire.
The lightning bolt knocked the top of the cross off the tower
The fire service said it received about 330 call-outs in five hours on Sunday night, most of which involved flooding in Todmorden and Hebden Bridge.
Fire crews were pumping out water until the early hours of Monday.
Lightning also hit five homes in Leeds, Menston, Mirfield and Huddersfield, and in Undercliffe, St Andrew's Church tower was damaged when it was struck.
One of the firemen who attended the scene said: "Lightning seems to have struck the roof and the cross.
"It's knocked the top off the cross so it looks like a letter 'T' and it's damaged the slate tiles and left a hole in the roof."
