Edinburgh flooding: Rising water causes chaos

Edinburgh has been been hit with flash flooding and thunder with one motorist stranded on a car roof.

Heavy rain prompted disruption in the west of the city across Bankhead, Clermiston and Corstorphine.

Tram services were temporarily shut down in some areas as flood water-covered tracks.

The MP for Edinburgh West, Christine Jardine, posted footage of water lapping up the front of her constituency office on St John's Road.
