Two adults and two children were rescued from a car stranded in flood water in Vale of Glamorgan on Wednesday.

The incident at Ewenny was one of a number in south Wales between 17:00 BST and 19:00 as heavy rain hit.

In Cardiff, the cellar of the Royal Oak pub on Broadway flooded, while sewage water entered a fabric shop on City Road after drains had blocked.

The Anchor Inn in Tintern, Monmouthshire, also flooded.
