Apparently, the video went around the web and users gave each other funny comments: “Now explain it to your insurance company.” Another commented, “They heard Mariah Carey calling and got together.”
The unusual scene came after the Met Office issued a weather warning for the south coast of England as Storm Claudius entered Britain from France.
Bad weather is expected to continue to ravage London, with the Met Office expecting “further heavy showers throughout the evening and strong winds to persist”.
