At least 15 people have been injured, two of them seriously, by lightning at a music festival in the north-east of France last night (02).

The lightning struck in several areas of the Vieux Canal festival in the town of Azerailles.

Those injured include children who were in a tent during the storm.

The victims were "directly hit by the lightning and suffered burns", the regional council said.

A woman in her sixties and a 44-year-old man are reported to be in a serious condition as a result of the strikes.
