A van driver and passenger are awaiting rescue after becoming another victim of the Charvil ford this morning.
A black Mercedes transit van is stuck in the water, which is a tributary of the River Loddon, after its driver tried to pass through it at around 9.20am.
It is understood the driver and the passenger are still sat in the car as they await rescue from the emergency services.
The level of water is said to be around 22 inches deep after rising in the rainfall experienced overnight and in the past few days.
This video of the rescue was taken by Woodley man Mark Jones who was walking his dog when he came across the incident.
Mr Jones said: "The van driver told me he only went through because he was following two Land Rovers and they went through without any problems."
