Posting on their Facebook page, the team said: "Today at around 1000 crew from Dunbar and Dalkeith were alerted to reports of flood water entering properties just outside East Linton.

"Crew quickly got to work with a low level strainer and lines of hose at one section and a portable pump at the other and pumped water into a neighbouring field away from the properties. Thanks too the speedy response from East lothian council who cleared the drains which helped bring the water level down.
