Firefighters issued a flash flood warning after gardens were submerged overnight.

Heavy rain affected several houses in Tokynton Avenue, Wembley, late yesterday evening (July 26).

The London Fire Brigade (LFB) was called at around 10.30pm, with flood water to a depth of one metre reported.

A spokesperson for the brigade said that there were no injuries.

They added: “It might be hot and dry one day, but the risk of heavy rain and flooding is round the corner.

"Recent storms have shown how quickly a flash flood can inundate a street.

“Our firefighters know what they need to do in a flood, but it’s important Londoners know as well. We’d encourage you to follow our flooding advice.”

Four fire engines and around 25 firefighters from Wembley, Willesden, North Kensington and Southall attended the flood, leaving the scene shortly after 7am this morning.

The fire brigade has issued advice to follow if your property is flooding:

  • Call 999 if you are in immediate danger. Follow the advice of the operator and if you are told to evacuate, do so
  • If you don’t evacuate when you are told you may be putting yourself and those people attempting to rescue you in greater danger
  • If you do evacuate, make sure you bring your grab bag with you. This should contain the essential items you’d need if you left your home
  • Turn off your gas supply, water and electricity supply, if it is possible and safe to do so
