A man and woman were trapped in a car after it entered flood water in North Yorkshire, the fire service said.

Five fire crews were called to the flooded ford in Colburn Lane, Colburn, shortly before 5.45pm yesterday (Friday, February 9).

The man and woman were rescued from the car by the emergency services.

“Crews used a line to secure the vehicle, walked the occupants to safety, and administered oxygen therapy for shock,” a North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service spokesperson said.
