Car careers into river near South Molton

Car in river: Emergency crews were called to Bish Mill near South Molton just after midnight this morning (Monday) after a car left the road and ended up in a shallow river.

South Western Ambulance Service raised the alarm and fire appliances from South Molton and Barnstaple were soon on scene, which was near the Mill Inn.

It had been feared people were trapped inside the car but on arrival fire fighters found all inside were clear and instead focussed on making the vehicle safe using water safety gear.

At present there is no information on whether anyone was injured.
