A teenager has told We Are South Devon how he had to call the emergency services yesterday (14/02) after he spotted a stranded car in flood water on Dartmouth Road, Paignton.

The 17 year old saw the Volvo and noticed a woman inside waving for help.

“no one had bothered helping her as everyone was too busy taking pictures we had attempted driving down to her but the water became up to door height very quickly so I rang the emergency services”

The fire service was able to get the driver and car to safety.
