Torrential rain is affecting parts of Northern Ireland as the Met Office issues a yellow warning for thunderstorms.

Belfast has been particularly badly hit with some travel disruption and localised flooding.

Police say part of the Lisburn Road in South Belfast has been closed after a car got stuck in floodwater.

Drivers are also being warned to take care in the Ballymena area after reports of flooding on the A26 at Woodgreen.

The downpours come following weeks of good weather and high temperatures.
