HUGE ‘flash of light’ followed by ‘massive explosion’ in Hackney Wick, London
 
According to The Mirror this afternoon, Monday, November 28, eyewitnesses in the London district of Hackney Wick described hearing a large ‘explosion’ followed by a ‘huge flash of light’
A large plume of smoke subsequently started billowing up into the sky they added. Another person living in Clapton told the publication that her front room ‘flashed blue when it happened’.
There has been no word yet regarding the cause of the incident although some suggestions – including a tweet from Hackney Police –  have pointed to a lightning strike.
“We’ve received several calls about loud bangs in the Stoke Newington area this evening. No major incidents have been reported to us. The noise appears to have been caused by thunder and lightning”, the force wrote.
