Traffic chaos and flooding in south county Dublin after heavy rain.

A heavy thunderstorm on the east coast of Ireland makes an impact on Dublin city centre and causes floods in the suburbs of Kilmacud and Dundrum.

Double-decker buses driving through flood water are to be seen, as is a flooded suburban garden, a damaged bridge and pedestrians using boxes and newspapers to cover their heads in the rain. A young man swims in the floodwater.
