Almost half an inch of rain fell in two hours prompting around 30 emergency calls to Kent Fire and Rescue Service.

Crews spent an hour pumping floodwater out of a house in Newitt Road, Hoo, at 4pm yesterday.
Earlier in the day they used portable pumps to clear water that was about two metres deep from a property in Cranbrook.
Trains were also delayed at Gillingham railway station for several hours last night due to flooding.

Control room staff also received reports of flooding in Chatham, Rochester, Sheerness, Faversham, Rolvenden, Lyminge, Birchington, Canterbury, Herne Bay, Sandwich, Westgate, Tunbridge Wells, Northfleet and Bean.
But it seems some people were able to see the brighter side of the downpours. Stephen Horn, pictured right, posed with a fishing rod next to a flooded section of the A2070 Willesborough Road in Ashford.
Thankfully, it seems yesterday's rain was just a blip.
Scattered sunshine is expected later today (Sunday), with bright sunshine and highs of 27C tomorrow predicted by the Met Office for London and the South East.
