Woman rescued from Athens floods

Help

Several hours of heavy rain and a thunderstorm in the Greek capital Athens have flooded roads and homes, caused traffic jams and disrupted the train and tram network, officials say.

No injuries have been reported, despite the deluge sweeping away cars and leaving one woman in the suburb of Halandri stranded waist-deep.

Rebecca Donovan reports.
