The Met Office has declared an amber weather warning for hail, thunder, lightning and floods in southern England.

Heavy showers and thunderstorms are on the way as some parts get a brief respite as the heatwave continues.

But the change in weather may lead to localised flooding and travel disruption.

The Met Office say London, Cambridgeshire, Essex and Suffolk can all expect conditions to alter.

Greater London and parts of Kent are also at risk, they say.

Heavy showers and thunderstorms are expected to persist for two to three hours in some areas.
