FIREFIGHTERS rescued a person from a car which had become stuck when driving through a ford in Eastnor.

Crews from Ledbury and Upton were called at 6.31am this morning to Clenchers Mill Lane near Ledbury.

The fire service said: "Be careful going through fords and flood water as they may be deeper than you expect, especially after the melting snow and heavy rain."

There are floods throughout the county as the snow melts. The photo shows a flood on a lane in Checkley, west of Hereford.
