Police are appealing for information following an incident which saw a car winched out of the water in Oulton Broad.

A spokesman for the police said they were called to reports of a silver Toyota Yaris in the water at the Yacht Station, Oulton Broad.

She added: “The fire service was called for assistance and the car was winched out of the water and back onto the land.

“A search was made but no-one was found inside the car.”

A crime of interference with a motor vehicle has been recorded by police after it was discovered to have a smashed window when it was found in the water.

A spokesman for Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service said: “We attended and used the Unimog [a specialised truck for water rescues] to remove the vehicle.”

The Environment Agency was also called due to what was believed to be a petrol leak from the car.

Anyone who saw anything suspicious or has any information can contact Suffolk Police on 101 quoting the crime reference number 37/35304/18.
