Breaking News ! Mountain rescue volunteers had to wade through freezing cold water after four lockdown breaking "idiots" got their 4x4 car stuck in flood water in North Yorkshire. Twenty two members of the Cleveland Mountain Rescue team were deployed in the early hours of yesterday morning (Tuesday) after being contacted by police to the scene at Hob Hole near Westerdale in the North York Moors. Another organisation said that four men from Middlesbrough had got their car - a Toyota RAV4 - stuck in the ford on Monday evening before abandoning it for the emergency services to take care of. They also found that the vehicle was neither taxed or insured. In a Facebook post that was headlined "MORE IDIOTS", North Yorkshire Moors Moorland Organisation (NYMMO) shared a video and pictures of the car submerged in the flood water with its windows broken from the pressure of the streaming water. The car was reportedly abandoned by the four men who had driven down in it (Image: NYMMO) A spokeswoman yesterday said: "After becoming stranded in the high rising water their comment to a local resident after they themselves had managed to get to the roadside was 'ere mate av ya got any rope'. "Needless to say the car was still in the water this morning as per the photos shown. There is no way in the rising waters last night that a 'rope' would have got this vehicle removed from the ford. "The waters this morning have eased slightly so we’re curious to see who is being tasked with recovering the vehicle and what if any damage to the bridge there is.

Members of the Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team were called to the scene at 0.30am yesterday morning and worked for five hours establishing whether people were in the car and searching the stream for any people trapped. In a log of the incident they said: "Due to the force of the water our Swift Water Rescue Technicians (SRTs) were unable to enter the water but searched from the nearby footbridge using long reach poles. Cleveland Mountain Rescue Team worked for five hours at the scene "Once reasonably satisfied that the car was empty the SRTs carried out a bank side search immediately downstream of the car. "After a few hours with nothing found and in liaison with the police our search parties stood-down for the night pending further enquiries by the police and any further requests from them for assistance. "We are not aware of the circumstances of the journey."
