Spectacular squall line over the English Channel and south UK – July 18, 2014

A strong squall line crossed through the MDT risk area yesterday evening, moving over north France, across the English Channel into south UK. It developed absolutely stunning structure, as evidenced by many great photos taken on both sides of the Channel. Here is a selection of some we liked best. Enjoy!
