Flash floods hit Edinburgh.

DOZENS of homes were flooded and motorists were left stranded after flash floods hit Edinburgh.

A flood alert was raised by the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA) as storms moved across the Lothian region on Friday afternoon.

Between 30 and 40 homes in the Morningside area of Edinburgh were said to be flooded. And around 25 cars were also affected by the weather.

The south and west of the city were said to have born the worst of the freak conditions, which included thunder and lightning storms.

Members of Lothian and Borders Fire and Rescue Service helped people stranded in their cars to safety.
