This could be the most British thing weíve seen.

Commuters leaving Londonís Hammersmith Station were confronted with flooding on the road outside.

Rather than get their shoes wet, or take them off, while crossing the ankle-deep puddle, they improvised.

Videos and photos posted online show how they created a makeshift chair-bridge from chairs from a nearby Pret A sandwich store.

A very civilised scene unfolded, with people holding hands and helping one another cross the small body of water.

The flooding happened after sudden rainfall ended the Londonís record-breaking heatwave.
