A few years ago a neighbour of mine had his TV ariel struck. It went down the cable to his TV, fried it and jumped across from the UNPLUGED PLUG and earthed to the wall socket.
Another time when my son was a toddler , he was in the bath and ball lightening came through the open bathroom window. It hovered towards the bath and disapeared into the bath tap, no problem luckily.
Long time no see Kernow.
