A minibus full of school children had to be rescued from three feet of water under a bridge in St Albans on Friday.

Fire crews were called to the bridge in Sandridgebury Lane after the bus became stuck because of major flooding at 8:50am.

One appliance from St Albans worked to rescue the bus for approximately an hour. No one was injured.

Later that day, fire crews rescued a male driver from under the Sandridgebury Lane bridge at 3pm.

I hope that all the children will soon get over what I imagine was very scary.

Sadly David Cameron and his party had purposely reduced the budget in line with his austerity measures which now means our country is doomed!

Well that is horrific. Part of the problem is that people also need to take responsibility by helping out where trouble is seen. Surely someone could have warned drivers about the flooded road.
