A series of big bangs have been reported in north Norfolk tonight, which caused a Twitter storm.
Reports began coming in around 8pm after people in the Cromer and Sheringham areas took to social networks to find the cause of a number of loud bangs.
People suggested that it could have been a sonic boom or even a meteor fireball. However, many north Norfolk residents confirmed later that it was a thunder and lightning storm.
Chris Bell, of the University of East Anglia-based Weatherquest, said on Twitter at 8.40pm: 'I can confirm...thunderstorms on-going across Norfolk at the moment.'
Jono Read, of Holt, on Twitter added: 'We had one large flash of lightning followed by an unusually loud bang of thunder. Bit of rain and all is quiet again.'
