Driver escapes from water-filled ditch after crash near Burnham

The driver of this car was lucky to escape injury after plunging into a water-filled ditch on New Year's Day.

Police were called to Harp Road after a passer-by spotted the vehicle in a rhyne, surrounded by water.

The vehicle had slid off the road following a period of heavy rain and the driver inside had managed to scramble free.

A police spokesman told "We were called out at 8.50pm by a member of the public to a car in a ditch in Harp Road. The driver was located and was found to be unharmed."

Harp Road - which runs from the Fox and Goose pub at Brent Knoll through to the village of Mark - has seen several similar accidents over the years.
