A 9-year-old boy has died in northern England after being hit by lightning.
Emergency services responded to reports of a seriously injured child at a soccer field in Blackpool on Tuesday afternoon.

Lancashire Police said enquiries were ongoing but officers believe he was struck by lightning.
Detective Superintendent Nick Connaughton said it was a "truly devastating incident."
"Our thoughts are wholeheartedly with the family and friends of the young boy, who has passed away, at this very sad and distressing time," he said.
