Three Brit backpackers were saved after their Scooby-Doo themed campervan was submerged in crocodile infested waters.

Emergency services in Queensland, Australia launched a rescue mission after the men, all in their early 20s, were spotted perched on the roof of the 'Mystery Machine' just metres from a sign warning about the deadly animals.

The gang had arrived at the riverside area near Gordonvale, about 15 miles south of Cairns, on Monday evening, Queensland Fire and Emergency Services (QFES) said.

Unluckily for the backpackers, they pitched up after several groups had left the campsite because they were warned about the risk of rapidly rising floodwaters.
