MyLondon has approached Transport For London for more information on disruption to its services.

To make matters worse for the capital, the Met Office has announced that an amber weather warning for thunderstorms is in place for London this evening (July 25).

It means that more ‘flooding is likely’.

A Met Office spokesperson said: “Heavy showers and isolated thunderstorms are likely to cause surface water flooding.

“Flooding of homes and businesses is likely and could happen quickly, with damage to some buildings from floodwater and isolated lightning strikes.

“Where flooding or lightning strikes occur, delays and some cancellations to train and bus services are likely.

“Spray and sudden flooding probably leading to difficult driving conditions and some road closures.”

The full list of stations that are reportedly closed are as follows:

  • Covent Garden
  • Edgware Road (circle)
  • Gants Hill
  • Kennington
  • North Greenwich
  • Pudding Mill Lane
  • Stepney Green
  • Stockwell
  • Surrey Quays
