Thunder, Lightning, Strike

On average three people die in the UK each year from lightning strikes.

Up to 60 people every year get struck and survive, but it's estimated that more than three-quarters of them suffer some form of permanent disability.

Men are four times as likely to be struck as women. This is believed to be because men are statistically more likely to be outdoors.

There are three types of lightning strike. A direct strike is when it hits you and goes to earth through you. A side flash is when it hits another object and jumps sideways to hit you. A ground strike is when it hits the ground then travels through it hitting you on the way.
