The storm set in around 1am, with heavy rain and thunder echoing through the clouds every few seconds.

Residents of the Portsmouth region will have until the weekend is over for relief from the severe weather.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning of heavy, thundery showers in the area - meaning the public are urged to ‘be aware.’

The Met predicts muggy conditions and possible torrential downpours with frequent lightning and possible flooding.
