LOT E145 damaged in Lightening Strike - MAN

Have heard that an Embraer 145 owned by LOT was struck by lightening while parked up for the night at Manchester Airport late last night, and has been damaged as far as there are holes in the fuselage with burn marks alongside.
Rather than getting airbourne at the usual 06:30, it departed early afternoon today (14th January) EMPTY bound for Poland, and requested full fuel tanks for the journey (not the usual request). At a guess its going back unpressurised at FL100 or there abouts, anyone know any more or find a News Link??
