Six fire engines were sent to the scene, in Eye Road, at 11.04am today.

"It looks like the car has drifted far into the water, one engine has arrived at the scene and the others are on their way," a fire service spokesman said earlier.

A stop was called to the incident at 12.05pm, once the woman and her pets were able to be freed from her vehicle.

Highways officers were alerted to the flood to ensure nobody else enters the water and gets into any more trouble, the spokesman added.

It comes after fire crews helped to rescue a man from flood water in Home Farm Lane, Bury St Edmunds, earlier today.

Flooding has caused major travel disruption this morning, with closures on the A14 and A12, and on smaller roads.

Wattisham had the most rain in the entire country overnight, according to the Met Office.
