A pregnant woman and her one-year-old child have been rescued from a car that got stuck in flood water in Essex.

The vehicle got stuck in 4ft (1.2m) water in Buttsbury Wash near Ingatestone at about 19:15 GMT on Sunday.

Fire crews had to smash both the rear and passenger windows to get the trapped pair out of the car.

Essex Fire Service's specialist water rescue team rescued them just before 19:40 GMT.
