Flash flooding struck parts of Belfast last night, turning some roads in the east of the city into rivers.

Parts of Holywood Road became waterlogged after torrential rain lashed Belfast, and vehicles struggled through the waters. There were also reports of flooding in the Stranmillis area of south Belfast.

Fortunately the worst of the deluge came after 10,000 Northern Ireland supporters had left the Titanic Quarter fanzone, where they had gathered to watch the Euro 2016 game against Poland.

Today, the Met Office has predicted showery outbreaks of rain spreading north east across most parts of the province during the morning. However, it's expected to brighten up with some showers in the afternoon.
