A person had to be rescued from a Rickmansworth underpass this afternoon after their mobility scooter became stuck in two feet of water.

Hertfordshire Constabulary was called to the High Street underpass, at the junction with Station Road, at about 1.10pm after receiving reports that a person was stranded in the flood.

Paramedics were also called to the scene but were not needed upon arrival. Police have taped off the area.

Hertfordshire County Council engineers are on the scene and investigating the cause of the flood, which is believed to have been caused by a fault in a pump.

Yes. Yes it is. You should be ashamed of yourself.

My dad got stuck when driving his scooter through a big puddle outside the Mercedes garage on Watford High street - shorted out the batteries. The chaps in the garage hauled him out and took him home. He was upset at the time, but was very grateful for the assistance.

No, not really. A mobility scooter in TWO FEET of water? You can't expect a car to go through two feet of water. Electricity and water don't mix! Bet he had a very wet seat..):):):)
