Parts of London have been submerged in floodwater after more than an inch of rain fell on the capital in under an hour. Flash floods in Knightsbridge burst into luxury shops with cars and buses spraying brown water along the high street as drains were quickly overwhelmed. Transport for London (TfL) said before 7am that at least four lines were suspended or severely delayed. Severe delays are currently being recorded on the Circle and District lines, Hammersmith and City lines with minor delays on the Piccadilly and Metropolitan lines. The District line has been closed between Earls Court and Barking due to flooding at Gloucester Road, TfL said.
