A retained crew from Midhurst was called to the scene in Highstead Lane, Lickfold, at 11.10am today, the fire service confirmed.

The crew rescued the driver from the vehicle with the help of a Surrey Fire and Rescue Service crew from Haslemere.

At 3.30pm, the road remained ‘impassable’, the fire service said.

A spokesman said: “With further bad weather forecast into the weekend, West Sussex Fire and Rescue Service is urging drivers to take extra care in these conditions, and not to chance their luck with floodwater.”
