Cars were stranded in flood water in Malton after a sudden storm today.

The downpour earlier this evening saw Broughton Road, next to the town's sports centre, closed due to a large amount of standing water.

Several vehicles were pictured stuck in the flood water by Twitter user Alex Wainman.

A tree was felled after being hit by lightning on the B1248 between Malton and North Grimston.
