RESCUE: Huge thanks for flood help

A huge thank-you to our local emergency services for coming out to rescue my daughter in last Thursday’s torrential rain and severe flooding.

Belinda became stranded when her car cut out in a flood where the river at Elsdon had broken its banks.

The emergency services were fantastic by supporting and keeping her calm on the mobile phone whilst the water was quickly rising around the car.

They also kept my wife informed and reassured throughout.

The police and fire service were quick to attend the scene and carried her to safety.

Sergeant Graham Vickers also telephoned the next day to check how Belinda was after the horrendous ordeal.

Thank you once again

Stuart Brown,

Thropton
