Two men had to be rescued from their vehicles in Worksop after they became trapped in flash floods in the town.
Four crews from Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue were called to Kilton Hill just before 6pm yesterday (October 7)after a heavy downpour marooned two cars in flood water.
Teams from Worksop and Tuxford attended the scene at first, but a specialist rescue team from the Newark station had to be called in to winch the cars from the water.
One of the men was taken straight to hospital by his family.
Video footage, posted on the Kilton House Chinese Takeaway Facebook site, shows the flash floods pouring down the streets at Kilton Hill.
A nearby resident wrote on the Guardian’s website that he had seen the floods develop and described them as ‘horrendous’.
He added that the floods had caused chaos on the roads and that there was a nine-car pile-up this morning.
