Two men travelling in a van had a lucky escape when it hit a puddle of water on the A361 outside Devizes and overturned.

The pair were travelling towards Swindon when the blue Ford Transit van hit the water at the end of the dual carriageway opposite the turning for Bishops Cannings at 4.40am this morning.

The van left the road and overturned and the men were trapped inside.

They called the emergency services and police officers and an ambulance crew were able to open the door for them to get out. A crew from Devizes Fire Station also attended but were not needed.

The men were treated at the scene and did not need to go to hospital.

Heavy rain overnight on Tuesday resulted in significant surface water on parts of the A361 between Devizes and Wroughton.
