Police and fire crews have been called to the A140 at Thwaite near Eye after a car got stuck in flood water.

Emergency services were called today at around 10.30am to the incident just of the A140 Norwich Road where a man had driven into flood water and couldn’t get out of his car.

A spokesman for Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service said two crews from Ipswich Princes Street and one from Stradbroke had been sent to the scene alongside a crew from Norfolk Fire and rescue Service.

He said: “We were called today at 10.31am to a vehicle in flood water in the area and the driver couldn’t get out of the car.

“It is on a side road of the A140.

“Two crews from Princes Street, including the Unimog, which is our all terrain vehicle.

“They will be joined by a crew from Stradbroke.”

A police spokeswoman added We were called by the fire service at around 10.45am.

“There is a car caught in some flood water.

“The driver, a man, is uninjured.”

She said although the road hadn’t been closed by police, drivers are advised to find an alternate route due to the flooding on the road.
