Floods spark retail park chaos in Kilmarnock

Firefighters have rescued 42 people who were stranded by floodwater at a supermarket in East Ayrshire.

The Asda at Queen's Drive Retail Park, Kilmarnock, was surrounded by water after the River Irvine burst its banks.

The entire area remains flooded, meaning businesses on the retail park will miss out on what should have been a busy day of trading.

Catriona Renton explains.
