Weather - Flooding in Hackney - London
As rain water swirls round the front doors of houses in White Post Lane, Hackney, E.9, some of the occupants try desperately to bale the water away, without much success. Two of the balers are Mr and Mrs R. Ashmore outside their house, No. 29 (left). The floods were caused by a heavy thunderstorm which hit parts of London and disrupted train services, holding up thousands of commuters.
