A car has become stuck in the water on a beach in Felixstowe.

Police sent a recovery vehicle to the scene shortly after 10pm today, after receiving reports of a Range Rover stuck on the beach near Undercliff Road West in the town.

A woman entered a seaside shop to report she was having difficulty with her vehicle, and needed it to be towed from the water.

A spokesperson for Suffolk police said the recovery operation had been unsuccessful, and the car would likely be entirely submerged by midnight.

He added that it would take a specialist vehicle to remove the car from the sea, which would have to be arranged by the owner and their insurance company.

The spokesperson also confirmed that nobody was injured in the incident.
