People had to be rescued from floodwater after their car got stuck.

Avon Fire and Rescue Service sent crews from Weston-super-Mare and Bedminster to Winscombe yesterday (Sunday) at 4.40pm to rescue the trapped duo.

The car had got stuck in Max Mill Lane following heavy rain fall.

Bad weather conditions also have caused problems in Cheddar, with a route through the gorge closed after a land slip.
