The landlord of a Gloucestershire pub cut off by floods has been talking about the moment he and members of his family capsized from a boat into freezing water.
Pete Bartlett, who runs the Yew Tree Inn at Chaceley near Tewkesbury had been trying to get his wife Carol, brother in law Kevin and their dog to dry land by boat.
But strong winds and waves overwhelmed them, and they ended up capsized, perched on a bush, clinging to tree branches.
Mr Bartlett managed to swim back to the pub and called the emergency services. They sent boat teams from The Severn Area Rescue Association (SARA) and Gloucestershire Fire & Rescue Service.
Rescuers managed to get the family into boats and then to dry land. They were taken to hospital where two of them were treated for hypothermia. The dog was swept away and never found.
Gloucestershire Correspondent Ken Goodwin has re-traced the rescuers route by boat and was there when Mr Bartlett thanked them for saving their lives.
SARA is an inshore rescue boat and land search operation, run by volunteers. You can read more about the charity's work here.
