Firefighters have warned people not to drive through flood water after being called out to help several trapped motorists this morning. Tom Augusztinyi, of Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service, said they had received about six calls from people who had tried to drive through flooded roads. The calls were to areas notorious for flooding in heavy rain spells, including Slash Lane, in Mountsorrel, and Syston Road, in Cossington. Mr Augusztinyi said: "Following the rain over night on Saturday, it was like Groundhog Day this morning. We were getting the same calls to the same places. "People still keep driving through flood waters and getting stuck, despite closures and diversions being in place. People think they can get through, and it's dangerous. "It's wasting our resources. If we go, we have to go with our technical rescue team in addition to the usual fire engines, because of the safety implications. "It's stating the obvious, but if there are road closures in place, don't drive through."
