The few office workers who did make it in were left stranded inside while a drainage pump cleared the road.

It follows a day of downpours that flooded London’s streets and brought an early close to England’s Test match against South Africa at Lord’s.

Some shops and platforms at Victoria Station had to close after flooding at the main entrance left water running down a slope leading towards the eastern concourse.

One heroic gentleman was spotted valiantly tackling the downpours outside King’s Cross – winning our hearts in the process.
