Fire crews used boats to rescue a man who became trapped on the roof of his car after it was stranded in a flooded road in Somerset.

A specialist rescue vehicle, as well as two fire engines from Bridgwater and a rescue tender from Taunton were sent to the scene, at Burrowbridge at 4.30am yesterday.
