Moment bar is battered by torrential flash flooding as thunderstorms LASH Britain


This is the moment a bar was battered by torrential flash flooding as thunderstorms lash Britain, marking the end of the UK‘s heatwave.

Drenched staff at the King Cons Bar in Stirling, Scotland, fought against a tide of rainwater flooding down the hill and sweeping into their pub, which has caused an estimated £7,000 worth of damage.

Shocking video footage of the flooding shows a torrent of fast-flowing water sweeping down the road.

Workers desperately try to barricade the entrance to the pub from the incoming tides, as one can be heard groaning in frustration at the damage caused.

The water crashes through a menu sign as staff are soaked from the rain continuing to pelt down.

Owner Nicky O’Neill, 42, told The Scottish Sun she is facing estimated repairs of £7,000 and is losing business during one of the busiest weeks of the year.

She told the website: ‘It was the start of Freshers’ Week yesterday, we had live music going but we had to clear the bar when that happened.’

She added that her carpets by the front door have been destroyed, the paintwork has been marked, while debris and rocks have washed down the street and are now blocking the pub’s front door.

She estimated that the cost to the new outdoor furniture alone was £2,700.

Nicky said the problems had been made worse by traffic calming measures introduced by the council, as well as blocked drains.

Thunderstorms and flooding have marked the end of the UK’s heatwave – as the UK has instead been swathed in yellow warnings from the Met Office.

Forecasters have warned that ‘flooding and disruption’ will hit many areas of the UK and thunderstorms will lash Britain.

Temperatures are also set to drop to 22C after last week’s heatwave saw 32.5C recorded in some areas of the UK.

In some rural parts of northern England temperatures will plunge into single figures, with frost on the horizon for some rural areas, bringing an end to long-standing humid conditions and an unseasonably warm start to the autumn.

The spell of hot weather broke the record for the most consecutive days with temperatures above 30C in September, with Saharan dust generating vivid sunsets and sunrises in the clear conditions.

The Met Office said that the highest temperature on Sunday was recorded in Cambridge, at 32.5C.
