Probe as car crashes into river

POLICE and fire crews are investigating after a car left a road and crashed into a river on the Suffolk-Essex border.

POLICE and fire crews were investigating last night after a car left a road and crashed into a river on the Suffolk-Essex border.

Emergency services were called to the scene at the River Stour at Sturmer, near Haverhill, at about 9.40pm.

They found a white Ford Fiesta submerged up to its windows in the water. No-one was inside the car.

Essex Fire Service said the rear window of the car had been smashed “presumably as the occupants of the vehicle escaped as there was no apparent sign of any casualties when firefighters arrived on the scene”.
