Brits are facing rush-hour travel chaos after thunderstorms and torrential downpours flooded roads overnight – as the Met issues another weather warning today.
Londoners who were kept awake by the storm took to social media this morning to report more ‘flood rain’ after thunder and flashes of lightning raged over parts of the country last night.
The house can be seen with its roof completely engulfed in flames as fire services attempt to put out the blaze.
Meanwhile Exeter Airport has reopened after it was forced to close due to flash floods.
It comes as yellow weather warnings were put in place after more than a month’s rain fell in 24 hours yesterday – bringing Britain’s record-breaking heatwave to a crashing halt.
The Met Office have predicted ‘a band of cloud and heavy rain’ which will move in from the west this evening.
‘Unsettled’ and ‘autumnal’ weather is predicted later this week with more heavy period of rain on the way.
One person wrote on Twitter this morning: ‘Could have sworn the weather forecast for this morning was ”a clear start to the day”. Nope flood rain! #weather.’
