Weather warnings issued on Thursday (September 15) were proven right in Uxbridge when the heavens opened causing flash flooding across the town.

The Met Office said thunderstorms and flash flooding were expected and the torrential downpours came at around 4pm.

Flooding was reported at Cowley Road and West Drayton Road.

There were also reports that Uxbridge Road flooded eastbound at the bottom of Hillingdon Hill.

Residents took to Facebook and Twitter to share their pictures and videos of the 'biblical rain' and thunder storms.

Some people were concerned about rail travel after the heavy downpour.

The torrents came just two days after the hottest September day in nearly 70 years , which was recorded at Heathrow.

A weather warning from the Met Office said: “Slow developing thunderstorms may develop later today (September 15), leading to locally torrential downpours with the risk of hail and frequent lightning.”

This is not the first time Uxbridge has seen localised flooding in recent months, as this video of Cowley Road shows.
