Emergency services have praised the actions of a delivery driver who risked his life to save an elderly couple from a submerged car.
The couple were pulled from the vehicle just in time, as water quickly rose around them.
Gary Brewer waded through the chest-high water in Sparkwell to reach the red Renault Clio shortly before noon.
He managed to release the two pensioners from the car - where water had risen within eight inches of the roof - before the fire service arrived.
All three were suffering from hypothermia due to the cold water, and Mr Brewer was taken to Derriford Hospital where he was also treated for cut wrists due to breaking glass.
South Western Ambulance Service dubbed Gary's act "selfless", and said the couple had travelled down to the West Country to spend time with family for New Year.
Police also live tweeted the dramatic rescue.
