In a post on Facebook they said: "The water looked shallow but was over 50cm deep in places. The crew used wading poles to make their way to the vehicle and then proceeded to push the car out due to the engine not working.

"The road outside Kimberley Caravan Centre is closed currently so please find an alternative route.

"Please can we remind all members of the public to consider the depth of the water before driving through it. There is lots of standing water due to the heavy rain."
