The vehicle was trapped in flood waters 2ft deep by an old railway bridge.

Fire crews from Nantwich and Crewe were called out at around 9pm last night (August 9).

Firefighters were able to push the car out of the water and into a private driveway.

Before they left, they contacted Cheshire East Council highways department to request barriers to prevent further cars entering the flood water.
