The road was closed at Hillingdon Circus after rain left the carriageway completely flooded. 

Images showed cars fighting their way through the flooded road before it was closed shortly after 8am. The image above, taken by Emily Finn, shows the Hillingdon underpass completely underwater.

Delays are stretching from the Master Brewer back to the M40 and from the Greenford Flyover.

There are also issues on public transport, with the Metropolitan Line also suffering from flooding.
