Flash flooding trapped people in their homes as storms and lightning streaked across the south of England.

Axar.az reports citing BBC.

Violent thunderstorms hit much of the South East and in Sussex a lightning strike sent a workshop up in flames.

At the height of the storms - between 02:30 and 03:30 BST - fire crews in Tunbridge Wells were called out 60 times in 60 minutes.

Residents reported up to a metre of water in some properties although no rescues were needed.

Crews pumped water out of homes.

In the worst-hit areas firefighters called on the Red Cross and local housing providers for extra assistance. Water pumps from other crews in the county were also used.
