A PERSHORE-based company helped rescue vehicles stuck in flood water. 

Pershore Motor Group employees rescued three vehicles which were trapped by its Hartlebury branch.

Tom Hall, a technician at the branch, said the road at the back of the business, Oak Drive, filled with water, which left many driving into the Hartlebury Trading Estate to become stuck.

"If you don't know, the road dips down a bit, and at the start, it looks pretty high up, so they do not know how deep it is until they get stuck in the middle," he said.

"We helped get them out and then offered to look at the cars.

"One vehicle we managed to get running again and fixed it."

The team had rescued the three cars in the space of one morning.

He said the sheer amount of rainfall massively built up in the area, and his colleague, who has been at the business for three years, has never seen the flooding like that.

Pershore Motor Group has branched across Evesham and Pershore and a service centre in Hartlebury.
