A driver was rescued from his sinking car yesterday after his Porsche 911 ended up submerged in a dyke in a Norfolk village.

The accident happened about 1.30pm on Tuesday when the sports car made a dramatic entry into the water off Anchor Street in Coltishall.

The driver was rescued from the Porsche by two men who were working on a boat at the mooring off the River Bure.

The Porsche damaged a moored-up boat before entering the water.

No one was injured in the incident.
