A yellow thunderstorm warning is in place on Saturday as heavy rain and thunderstorms could hit London.

The Met Office have predicted extremely wet and possibly severe weather in the capital this weekend.

Whilst temperatures will remain relatively high, in the low 20s/high 10s, a yellow weather warning for thunderstorms is in place covering a large section of the country, stretching from the north down to the midlands and ending several miles below London.

The Met office say thunderstorms and rain may bring some disruption, namely on Saturday, with a small chance that homes and businesses could be flooded quickly, causing damage to buildings from floodwater, lighting or hail.

Where flooding or lightning strikes occur, there is a chance of delays and some cancellations to train and bus services, and spray and sudden flooding could lead to difficult driving conditions and some road closures, the weather forecasters added.
