The fire service said they were unsure of the exact number, but say they are aware of six vehicles that became stuck.

Bucks Fire and Rescue sent crews from Great Holm and Bletchley, plus the water rescue unit from Newport Pagnell to the scene, with firefighters rescuing a man from one of the vehicles.

Following the flooding incident in Beachampton, Bucks Fire and Rescue issued the following advice: 'A number of drivers have been caught out by the amount of water on some local roads this morning.

'Please don't attempt to drive through water that is more than a few inches deep.

'It is often deeper than it looks and may be moving quite fast meaning your vehicle could become stranded.

'If your vehicle is stranded and you are safe, please contact your recovery service.

'If your vehicle is stranded and you are not safe, ring 999.'
