Glaisdale & Westgate Fords - Floodwater Incidents
As the January floods affect many areas of the country the driver of a Ford Ranger abandoned his vehicle after a failed attempt to cross Glaisdale Ford, North Yorkshire, whilst it was in spate.
Emergency services were on hand and the Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team secured the vehicle to a tree to prevent it being washed further down stream.
