Four people from the same family, one of them a six year old boy, have died in a flash flood in Castellón. They were washed away in their car in the heavy rain on Sunday when the small river, Rio Seco, in Onda burst its banks.

The Government Sub-Delegate reports that it happened at about 5,30pm, but the car was not found until just before 7pm. Those to die were trapped inside the vehicle which was covered completely by the water.

The dead were the 42 year old father who was driving the car, his six year old son, his 81 year old father and 78 year old mother. The fire service sent an underwater rescue diving team to the scene.

The Valencia region was hard hit by the rain and flooding, and Valencia airport had to close for a time on Sunday. In Vinarós, Castellón roads were closed as 102.7 litres per square metre fell in five hours.
