Halloween is a time for spooky hi-jinks, and an Irish TV station pulled off a brilliant prank on viewers when a weather presenter appeared to be struck by lightning on live television.

TG4 has kept the gag going by insisting it wasn’t a prank at all and that the TV station doesn’t know where she is. The hashtag #cábhfuilcaitlín
