After a week of hot and dry conditions, heavy rain and hail has caused flash flooding in Slad Road, Merrywalks, Beeches Green and Lower Street.

Stroud Times’ reader Merfyn Williams sent these pictures in after the heavens opened.

Mervyn said: “The police have closed the road is closed and a huge split appeared along the road outside my house – the drain covers have sunk as well and a house has been hit by lightning.”
