Abstract

Solutions of the Einstein-Maxwell equations with the addition of terms representing charged null fluid emitting from a spherically symmetric body are found. One type of solution is a simple extension of that found by Bonnor and Vaidya while the other represents a null electromagnetic field with null electric current.
