TWO people had to be rescued after their car and trailer became stuck in Shell Ford, Himbleton, near Droitwich.

A boat was launched by Hereford and Worcester Fire and Rescue Service to reach the pair at just after 10am this morning.

A spokesman for the fire service said: "Please check depth gauges when considering driving through Fords,only an egg cup full of water sucked into the engine is enough to ruin it."
