Flooding saw firefighters spend more than six hours pumping out a cellar in Wrenbury on Wednesday.

Cheshire Fire Service was called out to a property on Cholmondeley Road at around 10.10am with two fire engines attending from Nantwich and Sandbach.

A spokesperson said: "The crews used two pumps to remove flood water from the cellar. The depth of the flood water was approximately two feet.

"Firefighters were in attendance for around six hours."

Earlier on that morning Cheshire Fire Service was called out to a property in Chester Road, Malpas, after reports of flooding.

The incident happened shortly before 9am and saw a crew from Crewe attend.

A spokesperson said: "The crew isolated the electricity supply to the basement and used a pump to remove flood water from it."

And over the border in Shropshire, firefighters were called out to Ellesmere on Wednesday evening.

The incident at Swan Mere Park happened at around 7pm when one crew from Oswestry was called out to reports of flooding in the road.

The incident was handled by Severn Trent Water.

The heavy rainfall led to the Environment Agency deploying Phase One of the Frankwell flood defences on Wednesday afternoon.

Although a low peak expected on Thursday means the car park will be open, the latest overnight rainfall means a higher peak is expected on Friday and so the car park will be closed then.

A Shropshire Council spokesperson said: "Holders of season, resident and weekly tickets for Frankwell main car park are asked to monitor river levels as vehicles may need to be moved this evening.

"Based on current predictions, Frankwell Main car park will be closed tomorrow (Friday) and people are encouraged to use the Park & Ride service instead."
