Torrential rain and flash flooding cause travel chaos

Lightning strikes, hail, torrential rain and flash flooding have caused major travel problems across east and south-east England.

There have been problems on the roads in Sussex, Essex and London.

London Fire Brigade said it had helped people trapped in their cars across parts of the capital.

Southern Water said torrential rain fell across Sussex leading to some sewers becoming overwhelmed by the sheer volume of water.
