Storm Christoph: Motorists warned over driving through ford
Motorists have been warned against travelling through flood water after a driver got stuck in a ford.
The car had to be towed out of the Rufford Lane ford in Nottinghamshire following a period of heavy rain caused by Storm Christoph.
The ford is the location of some of the highest number of flood rescues in England.
"Never drive through flood water – it's not worth the risk," a spokesperson for the Environment Agency said.
"Not only can flood water damage your car but it can be life-threatening. Always check your route before you travel."
