A spokeswoman for Southern Water said: “Extreme rain can overwhelm the combined sewage and drainage system that exists in many parts of our region.

“Protecting homes, schools and businesses from flooding has led to some flooding, with excess water spilling into the sea. These runoffs are highly diluted and are typically 95 percent rainwater.

“We are committed to significantly reducing storm overflows and are implementing innovative pilot projects across the region to reduce the amount of rain entering our combined sewers by 2030.”

Lightning and thunder are forecast until 2 a.m. tomorrow.

Heavy showers will pound Brighton and Hove throughout the day today and parts of tomorrow.
