Floods in Teddington by Colin Simpson

London hit by extreme weather

Torrential rain swept across London causing flooding and bringing chaos to the capital's roads.

Fallen tree in Marylebone High Street

There have been floods in several parts of the capital; a block of flats in Wandsworth caught fire after a lightning strike and a tree has been partly felled in near Marylebone High Street.

The London Fire Brigade say that they have received 'hundreds' of calls reporting  flooding incidents.

Large parts of the UK are being severely affected by the extreme weather conditions, particularly southern and central England and Wales.

Rain is falling at up to 18mm (0.7in) an hour and some areas could see levels reach 100mm (3.9in) in 24 hours.

The Environment Agency has two flood warnings, and the Met Office has severe weather warnings for England and Wales.
