Walthamstow’s MP has urged people to get in touch if there are any problems on the roads amid heavy rainfall.

The Met Office has issued a yellow warning for between 6am and the rest of the day telling people to expect a chance of homes and businesses being flooded and a "slight chance" of power cuts.

It also warned that there could be disruption.

Stella Creasy, Labour MP for Walthamstow, has urged people to report any flooding on the roads as a comment on a Facebook post in the group Walthamstow Life.

She said: “Walthamstow Met office have issued warning of possible ‘disruption’ caused by the heavy rain today so have put post on Walthamstow life for reports of flooding - please use that to let me and my team know if any problems so can follow up! Fingers crossed not needed.”

The Met Office said: "There is a chance that homes and businesses could be flooded, causing damage to some buildings

"Bus and train services probably affected with journey times taking longer and the chance of cancellations.

"Spray and flooding on roads probably making journey times longer with some difficult driving conditions and the chance of road closures

"There is a small chance that some communities will become cut off by flooded roads

"There is a slight chance of power cuts and loss of other services to some homes and businesses."
