CLAYDONS: Firefighters are urging drivers not to ignore ‘Road Closed’ signs after being called out to rescue a stranded motorist near Steeple Claydon on Monday morning.

Just before 9am, three fire crews from Buckingham and Winslow went to the rescue of a man whose car was stuck in 10in of water on a section of the road between Calvert and Gawcott that had been closed because of flooding. Firemen wearing wide-area flooding suits moved him to safety.
