Default [BBC] South East lightning and flash floods leaves people trapped

[BBC] South East lightning and flash floods leaves people trapped
Full story with video: http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-kent-40653023

Flash flooding trapped people in their homes as storms and lightning
streaked across the south of England.

Violent thunderstorms hit much of the South East and in Sussex a
lightning strike sent a workshop up in flames.

At the height of the storms - between 02:30 and 03:30 BST - fire crews
in Tunbridge Wells were called out 60 times in 60 minutes.

Residents reported up to a metre of water in some properties although no
rescues were needed.

Crews pumped water out of homes.
