any piccys of the point at which the lightning made contact? (I presume
the TV aerial?)


well I wasn't getting on the roof !, but no the phono connector on the aerial lead blew off and
the pin had embedded itself in the carpet leaving a burn mark. photos 2&3
According to 6 or so neighbours/ virginmedia engineers the lightning struck the outside cable box serving a few houses
and there was a few virginmedia guys outside replacing customer TiVos, didn't seem to affect the telephone system
or the mains CU unit box.
