Police have also confirmed another man was trying to help the men inside the 4×4. He was pulled from the river at 12.10pm and has been receiving medical treatment since.

The men’s next of kin are currently being informed and will be supported by police, a spokesperson said. NYP has also confirmed more information on the tragedy will be released “in due course.”

Anyone who saw what happened at the River Esk is asked to call NYP on 101, option 4, quoting reference NYP-28122023-0146.

Following the tragedy, NYP have reiterated extreme caution is required on wet and flooded roads. The force’s advice is as follows: “Localised conditions across our area are making driving hazardous.

“Roads are particularly badly affected around the River Esk, to the north of the county, as we have seen with the tragic incident near Glaisdale. There was another incident at nearby Houlsyke at 12.49pm when a car got stuck in flood water and another at Kirby Wiske in Hambleton at 2.35pm.

“Thankfully, the occupants of both vehicles were brought to safety. The key advice is to consider whether your journey is necessary.

“If you are driving, use your headlights, leave extra space to the car in front, and take it slow and steady. Please avoid driving through any kind of standing or moving flood water if you possibly can.”
