People and pets have been rescued from flooding in Mid Wales amid the aftermath of heavy rain.

Firefighters from Welshpool and Llanfair Caereinion helped rescue six people and two dogs during three separate incidents across north Powys on Monday, February 24.

All three incidents involved cars that became stuck in flood water.

In the first incident, fire and rescue crews rescued a family of two adults and two children, and their two dogs from a car between Meifod and Llansanffraid.

Llanfair Caereinion Fire Station said on Monday evening: "Then on the way home both crews were rerouted to Llanymynech, before finally being sent to the third [incident] near Sarnybryncaled roundabout. So a bit of a trip around the country!"

Welshpool Fire Station said on Twitter that they attended "numerous flood related calls" on Monday morning.

While at Rhyddwymyn, near Caerhowel, a crew from Montgomery was sent to retrieve a vehicle stuck in flood water. They stood down before arriving at the scene after a local farmer helped the vehicle's occupant.

Craig Thomas, Head of Operational Response Powys Command at Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue, said that over the weekend, six incidents involved people being rescued from cars in flood water in north Powys.

"The warnings and advice is clearly not being listened," he said on Twitter.
