Flash floods hit London homes, roads and Tube stations

Torrential rain has flooded homes, roads and Tube stations in London after thunderstorms struck the south of England on Sunday.

Locals on a street in Woodford have been using buckets, brooms and wooden boards to create makeshift flood defences and scoop water away from their homes, while water gushing from an Underground station was caught on video.

 

Met Office meteorologist Steven Keates said parts of the south between south Suffolk and the Isle of Wight could be deluged by 100mm of rain in just a few hours on Sunday evening.

“There’s torrential thunderstorms around yet again,” he said.

“Into the evening, from Norfolk to Bournemouth we are going to see some pretty lively showers.

“Torrential downpours, thunder and lightning and potentially some hailstones are settling in the south.”

 

The rain brought an end to the heatwave earlier this week, potentially disappointing anyone who hoped for a dry, sunny trip to the coast.

The rest of the country was forecast to experience a cloudy, more settled end to the week while sunshine is expected in Scotland.
