The Met Office - which has issued yellow weather warnings telling people to "be aware" of downpours - said the rain was most severe at around 3am.

Flooding and heavy winds expected from Bertha storm

The remains of ex-hurricane Bertha could cause some flooding and heavy winds overnight and into tomorrow, a Met Office forecaster says.

Greg Dewhurst told ITV News' London Correspondent Simon Harris that winds could reach around gale force in some coastal areas, making waves more treacherous.

Mr Dewhurst said an area of low pressure would move into south-western parts of England in the early hours of the morning before moving into north-eastwards across most parts of the UK throughout the day.
