Flood warning to drivers after two rescued from car

Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service is warning drivers not to drive through floodwater, after two people had to be rescued from their car. The incident happened at Mawnan Smith near Falmouth last night (Sunday 3 November), where the car had become stuck in two feet of floodwater.

Please do not attempt to drive through flooded roads or fords. The water is often deeper than it looks and may be moving quite fast. Your vehicle may be swept away or become stranded. Driving in the dark is particularly hazardous due to the water being more difficult to see.
