Flooding causes problems at Brexit polling stations in London

Several polling stations in London are flooded and had to be relocated as Britain votes whether or not to leave the European Union.

Voters had difficulties accessing several other polling stations in London due to the flooding that was caused by torrential rain overnight, according to the Press Association news agency.

Two stations opened late because the high water caused transportation problems for staff members.
