    A supermarket delivery driver was rescued from the top of his van after it was swept away.

    He was trapped in the River Wear at Westgate, County Durham in the dark, surrounded by the fast-flowing water which was swollen with snow melt.

    Water specialists from Durham and Darlington Fire and Rescue Service braved the river in a raft attached to a nearby footbridge and gave the man a life jacket.

    He was eventually brought to safety and was taken to hospital.
