Flooding causes travel chaos in London as Tube and roads forced to close following overnight rainfall

Flooding has caused travel chaos in London as the Tube and roads have been forced to close following heavy rainfall overnight.

Two Tube lines and some services on the London Overground have closed after the downpours, Transport for London (TfL) said. 

The Circle, District and Hammersmith and City Lines are all operating with severe delays due to a signal failure caused by flooding at Gloucester Road Station.

The District line has reportedly been closed between Earls Court and Barking due to the same flooding. 

TfL also said there is no London Overground service between Kensington (Olympia) and Clapham Junction due to flooding in the Imperial Wharf area.

In a video taken in Knightsbridge on Tuesday morning, motorists can be seen slowly driving through the waterlogged roads.
