Would the following make sense:

A lightening strike or possibility of one when on final approach, causes the flight crew to cancel their approach in order to run checklists. Meanwhile LHR closes runways for a period or may do so shortly. Flight crew make a judgement call that further holding to join the landing pattern and/or a closed field would lead to minimum fuel issues. They therefore decided to divert to Stansted, where there will be less of a queue to land and better met conditions.
