The dark Vauxhall Corsa was partly submerged in water at around 10.30am on Thursday November, 28 under the railway bridge on Green Lane in Thorpe St Andrew.

Three men - Max Hampton, Billy Lewis and Calvin Smith - were in the car.

They called a recovery vehicle, which slowly towed the car to safety.

This is the second time in the space of a month a car has become trapped in the same spot.
