Just for the record, here is some of our damage from the lightning in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
This is one of the Nintendo DS chargers that was in a plug behind the sofa. It was just in the socket, not turned on. Both sides of the charger have been blown out, and they were some distance from the socket on the floor.
This is the BT main socket where the line comes in to the house. Scorch marks and the plastic blown apart again.
And this is the fireplace. You can see a smashed tile in there, and the woodwork damaged here. Must have been some force!
The Claims company and the loss adjuster have both been on the phone tonight and the chap is coming tomorrow as he has had a cancellation so he can fit us in earlier; he'll be here about 11.30am and BT anytime between 8am and 1pm. Hopefully we will be on the up tomorrow!
