Severe flash floods have caused chaos for residents in Wellesbourne.

Firefighters were called to a flooded home yesterday (Thursday) after drainage ditches overflowed, affecting the nearby property.

The road was closed to prevent bow waves from cars as the crew helped the owner set up a pump to extract water from the house.

The team was then called to a marooned car in flood water. The driver and a passenger were able to leave the vehicle safely which was then recovered by the crew.

Warwickshire Fire & Rescue Service put out a post on social media following reports of multiple phone calls to control about flooding, they have advised people to visit www.warwickshire.gov.uk/flooding for information and advice and if you are worried your home is flooding then to move all important and valuable items upstairs to keep them safe.
