This is the moment that lightning struck a wind turbine on the Fife coast, during Wednesday morning’s brutal thunder storm.

The video was taken from Denbeath, and shows the giant Levenmouth turbine on the coast being hit, leaving a trail in mid-air after the lightning has past.

The clip, which was taken by Harriet Logie, comes after a house in Markinch caught fire yesterday after being hit by lightning.
