Five people in Eynsford were thankful to Kent Fire and Rescue Service after their car became submerged in water following yesterday’s storm.

Four adults and a child were rescued from the roof of their car after getting stuck in a 2ft deep ford in Riverside at around 7pm.

A spokesman for Kent Fire and Rescue said: “Crews donned dry suits to reach four adults and one child, who were led to dry land.

“Crews then used a winch to pull the vehicle out of the water. No one was injured.”
