A house has been struck by lightning and several others flooded after torrential downpours in parts of Scotland.

Firefighters were called to a property at Beveridge Avenue, Mayfield, Midlothian, on Tuesday afternoon after it was hit by lightning.

No-one was injured but the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service said five appliances were sent to the scene to deal with roof damage.

In Penicuik, flash flooding led to firefighters being called to homes to pump water out. Schools and a leisure centre were also affected.

A funnel cloud was pictured forging its way through Bonnyrigg at the height of the storms.

The Met Office issued a yellow 'be aware' weather warning for much of Scotland on Tuesday advising of the potential for "torrential downpours" with hail and thunderstorms.

Forecasters warned of travel disruption and flooding as up to 1.5 inches rain was predicted to fall in a few hours.
