UPDATE: THAMES WATER ARE NOW SAYING THE WATER IS BACK ON! HOORAH!
South Londoners, don't make any plans to have a bath tonight. Thanks to a burst water main on Kennington Park Road, Thames Water's website is currently reporting a lack of water in SE and SW London:
The fire brigade are reporting that the road's half a metre deep in water, that several basements in the area are flooded and they've had to send 72 firefighters out to deal with it:
Even the Southbank Centre's had to close:
Customers please note that due to a problem with water supply we have to close Southbank Centre until it is repaired We hope to reopen ASAP— Southbank Centre (@southbankcentre) June 29, 2015
Traffic's probably going to be screwed too:
A3 Kennington Park Road btwn A23 Kennington Road + Newington Butts - remains closed, following earlier flooding due to burst water main.— TfL Traffic News (@TfLTrafficNews) June 29, 2015
Say hello to London's latest swimming pool:

Remember when Hillingdon got two weeks worth of rain in one go?
Or the time Herne Hill ended up 'a metre underwater'?
