Rain brings chaos to London as the city suffers flash floods

The Telegraph published this video item, entitled “Rain brings chaos to London as the city suffers flash floods” – below is their description.

Flash floods have brought chaos to London as rain lashed down on the capital shutting train lines and leaving cars stranded on flooded roads.

The Almeida Theatre, in Islington, stopped a performance of Patriots, starring Tom Hollander, and evacuated the audience and cast after the roof began to leak.

Heavy rain drenched the South East after weeks of dry weather, causing flash flooding that stranded people in their homes and cars and shut down Tube and train lines.

Homes and businesses in north and east London were flooded, while motorists on the North Circular abandoned their cars after the road was submerged. The M25 was also blocked, with National Highways staff sent to clear floodwater.
