MOTORISTS who ignored road closed signs had to be rescued from their vehicles after becoming trapped in deep water in North Yorkshire.

One incident happened shortly after 6.30pm on Wednesday, January 30, at Butterwick, near Brawby, and involved two women, one in her 60s, the other in her 80s.

Firefighters from Malton attended and rescued the two, taking them back to dry land where they were checked by ambulance crews and found to be uninjured.

The second incident happened at York Bridge Road, Tollerton, some two hours later when a woman and her car were recovered from deep water.

In both instances the cars involved had been driven past road closed signs.
