Twin lightning bolts striking in Derry left a motorist stunned as his dash cam captured the close encounter.

Martin McKenna was heading towards the village of Gavagh when he was left speechless as two powerful lightning strikes hit the ground a few miles ahead of him.

The amazing footage shows the gloom hanging over Derry sensationally lit up by the two rapid flashes.

Posted online, the footage immediately attracted hundreds of views for the keen sky watcher.
