A woman and child had to be rescued from a car in flood waters yesterday afternoon when it became stuck and was drifting in waist high water.
The rescue happened shortly after three o'clock near to the mill at Mill Hill in Cleator Moor.
Five fire engines - one from Frizington, two from Workington, one from Seascale and another from Carlisle East - were in attendance at the scene.
A swift water rescue team was also sent to the rescue.
The woman and child were taken to a place of safety, and the car was left in the water because of the strength of the current and depth of the water.
