Hornsey Road turned into a fast-flowing river this morning with people struggling through the 4ft deep water on their way to work.

It has now been closed between Tollington Road and Seven Sisters Road while eight fire engines and around 60 firefighters try to fix the problem.

The video shows the speed of the water as it tears through the strait.

Cars can be seen with water reaching far up their bumpers – while a brave delivery man raced through the area on a motorcycle.

Meanwhile, residents of Dartford were also hit by a burst water main in Priory Road last night.

It comes as Britons are set to face another ten-day heatwave.

Temperatures will reach a balmy 29C today – but by Thursday the mercury will have risen to 30C.

The hot weather is expected to continue well into next week but will not reach the sweltering temperatures that Brits saw in July.

More than two million Britons in Kent and Sussex have already been banned from watering their gardens, cleaning their cars or filling pools with hoses.

And they face fines of up to £1,000 if they break Friday’s rules.

South East Water insisted it had “no choice” to implement the ban, which will reduce the amount of water to be withdrawn from “already stressed local water sources.”

A Met Office map has also revealed when and where Britons can enjoy 30C heat on Wednesday afternoon.

South West areas, including Gillingham in Dorset, Oxford and Gloucester, are the most likely to rise to the hotter temperatures.
