Two men were rescued by firefighters after their lorry broke down in flood water in Gloucestershire.
The water rescue team from the fire service used an amphibious vehicle to get to the men who were stuck about 500m down a flooded road in Tewkesbury.
The fire service was called to the Ashchurch area just before 13:45 GMT.
In Sandhurst, crews used a 4x4 vehicle to move an elderly woman to safety when flood water began entering her home.
Flood warnings have been issued for Tewkesbury, Brimscombe, Thrupp, Ashleworth, Sandhurst and Maisemore. More heavy rain is expected.
