Burgess Hill Tesco floods after Met Office amber warning

TESCO customers huddled inside after a supermarket was flooded with rainwater.

Water seeped into the store on Jane Murray Way in Burgess Hill after the main foyer was shaken by the elements.

One customer said she only stopped by for a few minutes, but very quickly the store filled with inches of water.

Emma Charlesworth said: “It started coming in through the doors and was completely submerged.

“Within a few minutes, the flood water started pouring down from the parking lot.

“They had opened the fire doors to try to sweep water out.”

Ms Charlesworth, 35, said she had only been in the shop a few minutes and when she walked out in the rain there was only spitting.

When she came out, the torrential rain meant customers had to huddle inside to avoid getting soaked.

The flood comes as a county-wide yellow weather warning has been issued, with rain and thunderstorms ravaging the area.

The Met Office said: “Flooding of homes and businesses is likely and could happen quickly, with some buildings damaged by flood water, lightning, hail or strong winds.”

After a weekend of heat waves, the change in weather has wreaked havoc across the county.

Storms have caused numerous problems across the region, including a flooded road on Haywards Heath.
