Rain poured into London Liverpool Street station this evening as torrential rain disrupted the rush hour commute.
People reported flooding and delays as they tried to head home tonight.
It looked like it was raining inside the station too as the water came in through the ceiling.
Those trying to get home to Essex and East Anglia had to contend with the thunderstorm causing track circuit failures.
A Network Rail spokesman said: We apologise to passengers whose journeys have been affected by flooding at Liverpool Street station.
This caused several track circuit failures and we had to close several platforms around 4.30pm while we worked to fix the issue.

These platforms reopened shortly after 5pm, though there will be residual delays while we restore services.
Jade Larr tweeted a photo of crowds rammed into the station, captioned: Nightmare commute home.
She also showed a video of the scale of the backlog of passengers waiting to get their trains.
