|Essex Police helo`. (Immune from floodwaters whilst in air)|
|A very flooded road, leading to an very angry river.|
|A Range Rover that neither floats, climbs Kilimanjaro or shoots rapids. Trade Descriptions Act breached?|
The intrepid duo approached the river down a road that was a 300 metres stretch of overflowed river.(warning clue number one)
At bridges it is usually narrow and fast flowing and a full eight feet lower than this (warning clue number two).
There is even a weir (warning clue number three).
The nearer they got the faster the mighty Waveney flowed, but on they pressed (big hint number one). The vehicle starts to move sideways (message that you are no longer in control)
Then its lifted by the current and dumped against trees. It was freezing and they were lucky not to have been swept into the river totally.
Essex helo (@£2k an hour), a fire engine, a fire service dinghy, paramedics and 4 police units later and its all sorted. So, Land Rover, expect to hear from someones solicitors in due course.
