Coombe Road in Norbiton is closed both ways.

The blockage has formed in the area around Norbiton Avenue.

There was also heavy flooding beneath New Malden railway bridge in High Street. 

Outside The Box Comedy (@OTBComedy) tweeted a picture of cars driving through the water, saying: "New Malden station bridge has a temporary swimming pool!"

But just after 3.45pm, @ContactKingston said flooding beneath the bridge had been cleared.
