Mountain rescue team were called to action as water levels started to rise.

The team in Keswick helped to evacuate the caravan park on Crow Park Road during the early hours of the morning.

A spokesman for the team said: "Storm Ciara caused some very early morning chaos at the caravan park on Crow Park Road in Keswick.

"An evacuation of the site was commencing when the police requested support from Keswick MRT.

"The initial task was clearing a narrow lane with a stalled camper van that was causing a blockage.

"We were then directed to a flooded area in the park to help people and dogs trapped in vehicles.

"During this short time, it was noticeable how the depth and strength of the floodwaters were increasing.

"Everyone was helped to safer areas but unfortunately some vehicles had to be abandoned."

The 12 volunteers were there for more than two hours.
