A Bentley Continental submurged in flood water after it tried to get through floods in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire is recovered by the AA special response team. A lottery winner's luck ran out when he wrote off his GBP100,000 Bentley Continental -- after he tried to drive through a flooded road. Hapless Robert Johnson, 65, splashed out on the brand new motor three years ago after scooping the GBP5million lottery jackpot in 2008. But he was forced to ditch his "pride and joy" when he drove through flood water in Tewkesbury, Glos, shortly after 8am on Wednesday 2 January 2013. The wealthy management consultant and landowner was driving along a country lane on the outskirts of the town when his car got swamped by 3ft of water after a stream burst its banks. Grandad-of-one Robert rang the AA and a rescue truck arrived but was unable to tow the car to dry land because Bentley's can only be towed from the front. Rising flood water meant the AA truck was unable to reach the car -- forcing Robert to leave the jet black vehicle to the mercy of the floods.
