The Quiet After The Storm

After one hell of a rocky night, the views over Manchester are absolutely beautiful this morning.


Areas of Manchester are looking post-apocalyptic this morning but the skies. are. beautiful.

Manchester-bound planes, trains and automobiles were severely delayed last night on account of the freak thunderstorm and severe thunder and lightning across the city - and it was supposed the be the hottest day on record since the 1940s!

As spectacular lightning-bolted scenes and violent storms raged through the city, the Champions League was postponed, Harvey Nic's flooded and major transport anarchy ensued across Greater Manchester.

Whilst the rest of the UK basked in glorious sunshine.


The air has cleared this morning - it looks like we're in for one hell of a day

Metrolink services in Manchester have now returned to normal after engineers worked through the night to repair the intense damage caused by some of the heaviest rain and lightning this city has witnessed.

Transport disruptions in Greater Manchester, Altrincham and Bury lines had suspended services for the evening.

Passengers are advised to check the Metrolink website and their Twitter feed for the latest information as minor delays could still be expected.
