Tower Bridge FLOODED: Torrential rain causes travel chaos in London with main roads and tube stations flooded as Met Office warns of UK downpours
London has been ravaged by torrential rains with flooding hitting major roads and transport networks in the capital.
The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for most of England, saying heavy downpours could cause disruption across the country throughout the day.
The warning, which stretches hundreds of miles from London to Hartlepool, means there is a chance that homes and businesses could be flooded, causing damage to some buildings.
In London, flooding has hit the North Circular, Tower Bridge and District Line of the London Underground so far.
Footage taken on Tuesday (September 14) shows the capital’s iconic Tower Bridge, deep in rainwater, as buses and cars struggle to find their way across the River Thames.
On the North Circular, motorists are warned of delays as the challenging weather disrupts people’s routes.
