Paratroopers helped rescue drivers stuck in flood waters as they returned from exercise.

The soldiers, from 2nd Battalion the Parachute Regiment, were on their way back from a training exercise in Thetford, when they saw a number of cars submerged in flood-water in Tostock, Bury St Edmunds at about 8am on Friday.

The four members of the anti-tank platoon spent about 30 minutes moving the cars to a safe area.
