In the village of Kirkley Mill, Northumberland, an RSPCA emergency team, called out to help some horses, found themselves rescuing a baby trapped in a car.
Spokeswoman Katie Geary said: "The horses were fine but when we got there we found a couple trying to get their baby out of a car. The door had been jammed - they were very relieved we were able to help."
Meanwhile, West Mercia police have reported flooding in Herefordshire, Worcestershire and Shropshire.
Motorists are being urged to be cautious.
Chief Superintendent Viv Howells of West Mercia Constabulary said: "Some localised flooding is being experienced and there is a large amount of surface water on the roads. However, there is no cause for major concern."
Many sporting and cultural events also had to be cancelled due to the wet weather.
Gloucestershire's biggest agricultural event, the Moreton-in-Marsh show, was abandoned, as were race meetings at Haydock Park, Merseyside; Stratford, Warwickshire; Gosforth Park, Newcastle, and Worcester, Worcestershire.
Phil Rothwell, from the Environment Agency, says the wet summer hasn't helped the situation.
"I think our catchments and the soils are very wet and saturated, and river levels are therefore responding very quickly."
