Sheffield was battered by a huge downpour at lunchtime with the Met Office issuing a yellow warning of rain for the city.

A number of roads were flooded as a result of the rain, including Penistone Road, Newhall Road, Halifax Road, Sharrowvale Road and Shiregreen Lane.

Streets Ahead said that their team were responding to reports of ‘surface water and localised flooding’ and warned motorists to take extra care when travelling.
