Four crews from Nottinghamshire Fire and Rescue were called to Kilton Hill in Worksop just before 6pm yesterday (October 7) after a heavy downpour marooned two cars in flood water.
Teams from Worksop and Tuxford attended the scene at first, but a specialist rescue team from the Newark station had to be called in to winch the cars from the water.
One of the men was taken straight to hospital by his family.

He added that the floods had caused chaos on the roads and that there was a nine-car pile-up this morning.
