A DAM partly collapsed in Almeria, catching car owners who parked in the drainage channel by surprise.

Footage shows some drivers getting their cars out of the way just in time, while another battles against the current to retrieve his vehicle. Some cars can also be seen being swept away.

Residents hedged their bets after the weather had returned to normal in Pulpi, despite being warned not to leave their cars parked in a drainage channel.

At the time of writing It was unclear what caused part of the dam wall, holding a private irrigation reservoir, to collapse.
