Cheshire Fire and Rescue have been deployed to help a man in a stranded vehicle.

They were called to Audley Road in Barthomley around 8am this morning (12 June).

One male was trapped in the vehicle in water approximately one foot deep.

He was found to be suffering from shock and hypothermia.

The man was rescued by firefighters using wading poles, and handed into the care of paramedics.

Fire engines were also called out to two Cheshire pubs this morning, after their cellars became flooded following heavy downpours.

They were used to pump water out of the properties on Ford Lane in Crewe, and Cholmondeley Road in Wrenbury.

Several roads have also been closed today, due to flooding.
