Today’s rainfall closed Upminster Bridge tube station this morning when it flooded.

The station on the District Line closed for half an hour this morning from approximately 8.50am.

Baillie posted on twitter because the diversion he took to avoid the flooded London Underground station took a turn for the worse.

“Upminster Bridge station flooded so they closed it. Had to bus it to Romford and then someone splashed me in their car lol,” he tweeted.
