Heavy rainfall has caused disruption across Newham this afternoon, with commuters facing a long journey home.
The sudden downpour, which started at around 3.15pm, prompted a number of flash floods, causing roads to be blocked in Forest Gate and Stratford.
Trains are also affected, with flooding on the line at Manor Park causing delays and cancellations on the Greater Anglia service from Liverpool Street to Shenfield.
Tickets are being accepted on c2c and Great Northern services, the Tube and TfL buses on reasonable routes.
The London Fire Brigade said that some floods in east London were as deep as two feet but nobody has been reported injured.
