Heavy rain has seriously affected some parts of the UK with flooding. It led to the disruption of the rail network with many routes obstructed by water and a number of London underground lines have been suspended because of the rising floods.
In addition, the flood affected commercial properties, homes and vehicles trapped in the flood. According to reports, some properties were struck by lightning which also brought down a tree. The London Fire Brigade appealed to people to dial 999 where life or property is endangered.
