Heavy rain and strong wind has battered much of Britain, with fierce thunderstorms hitting London as the Met Office issued severe weather warnings.

Shoppers were left drenched in fierce downpours across the south, while sports fans at football, rugby and horse racing meetings were hit by torrential rain.

London was struck by a fierce electrical storm in later afternoon, with lightning strikes cracking across the sky, pouring rain and hailstones pelting the city.

The thunderstorms also struck across the Midlands and into East Anglia, with winds of more than 50mph reported yesterday afternoon.

It was an absolute ripper! The UK lightning tracker site was incredible for a few minutes. Mother Nature does fireworks better than the commercial varieties. It did bugger up the Cambridge train arrivals and departures for a few hours though (and many others I suspect!)

Yesterdays weather where I live was really quite strange.I walked into town at 11am,in sunshine and no wind!It stayed that way until 3.30pm,and all of a sudden the sky went black,the wind started howling,and it was like someone had just turned a switch!lol Luckily ours only lasted a couple of hours if that.All looks well this morning!
