Footage has emerged of the moment a temple's roof was hit by lightning.

According to a report in London's Mirror, the CCTV shows a group of elderly worhshippers singing hymns as the bolt strikes.

The dramatic vision, recorded inside the Ramgarhia Sikh Temple in Leicester, at the weekend shows the singing women hit by falling debris.

Timber from the roof were thrown 40 metres way, according to the Mirror.

Kulwant Kaur Kalsi, 80, was hit and said it was amazing no-one was seriously hurt.

"One minute we were sitting there singing, then we heard the thunder and saw the lightning and the roof fell in," she told the Mirror. "I was only hit by tiles but a woman was hit by some wood. She had cuts and bruises."
