Torrential rain brings flooding to east Leeds

Torrential rain brought flooding to parts of east Leeds and closed the M1 motorway.

In east Leeds, firefighters pumped water from flooded homes after drains backed up in Swillington and Garforth.

Some residents spent the night away from their homes.

The M1 near to Leeds was closed until 03:00 BST when flooding left debris on the carriageway.
