Norwich flooding: Elderly couple rescued from submerged car

The rescue of an elderly couple from a car nearly submerged in "freezing" flood water on the outskirts of Norwich was "touch and go", say eyewitnesses.

Their vehicle became trapped in the water on Green Lane, Thorpe End on Christmas Eve morning, an area known by locals to flood regularly during heavy rain.

Norfolk Police said they were investigating and the couple were being cared for by ambulance crews.
