FIREFIGHTERS were called to rescue a woman who was trapped in her car in flood water.

A train passenger called the emergency services when they spotted the vehicle in difficulty in Harris Lane, Chalton, near Clanfield.

Crews from Horndean and Havant were sent to help the woman just after midday yesterday. She had already freed herself by the time they arrived.

Police closed the lane to stop other drivers going through.
