Four people have been reported to be injured after a lightning strike hit a Hamilton school.

A St John Ambulance spokesperson said staff were currently on the scene at Hamilton Junior High School and Hamilton North School.

The Ambulance staff were called to Warwick Ave premises after reports of a lightning strike that had struck four people.

The spokeswoman confirmed that all four injured were adults and are currently in a moderate condition.

Emergency services were called around 2 p.m.

A local shop owner told Newshub, ambulances responded to the school after the loudest thunder and lightning [she’d] heard in a long time. More to come.
