Firefighters waded in to rescue a family of four whose car got stuck in floodwater in St Albans yesterday.

Crews were called to Sandbridgebury Lane at around 4.15pm when the people carrier got into difficulty in three feet of water.

They spent just over 20 minutes towing the vehicle out of the flood.
