This storm happened in the dead of night without much warning. It was spawned by upper level instability ahead of a trough to the west and occlusion to the south. I captured some C-C as the storm drifted away into the distance with a few good thunders but nothing spectacular.

Later on during the daylight hours a huge multi-cellular thunderstorm line broke out along the M4 corridor between Bristol and London on the low centre / triple point. It had a large hook echo on the radar but I believe it was only following the surface flow of the low. It was stampeding northwards but by the time it reached the local area it had long dissipated.
