Heavy rain and storms bring flash floods to south Wales

An elderly couple had to be rescued from their home as storms and intense downpours caused flash flooding across south Wales.

Cardiff and Cwmbran were worst hit with homes and businesses affected as well as the M4.

South Wales Fire and Rescue Service said they received 115 calls with incidents also in Penarth in the Vale of Glamorgan and Bettws in Newport.

Penarth resident Tiger McLeod was left with a crack in his wall after water came through his house and a garden wall collapsed into the basement.

Matt Murray reports.
