A 47-year-old man was found dead by rescuers after his car was swept away by a flash flood in Serres, northern Greece, on Sunday.

The man had been driving beside a stream in the area of Sidirokastro when the bank subsided and his vehicle fell into the rushing water, swollen by heavy rains.

Rescue teams found the car covered in deep mud and the driver dead inside it.

Many parts of Greece have been experiencing downpours and floods since Saturday.

Motorists are advised to exercise caution when driving near rivers and streams.
