Home owners in Midhurst’s Pitsham Wood estate were left stranded in their homes when flood water turned their access road into a lake five feet deep.

Firefighters were called to the scene when two men became trapped in their car in the flood water. It sank up to the level of the wind screen in the flood water and fire fighters waded in to tow them out.

There was concern from residents with no sign of the water receding and further heavy rain forecast.
