Police appeal for witnesses after car goes overboard

A police investigation has been launched after a car was found in the sea with its engine still running today.

A member of the public reported spotting the car on the shoreline near Ducking Stool Park in Pembroke at about 7am.

The hatchback was nose-down in the water with no one inside, although the engine was running.

The vehicle was later removed.

A police spokesman said officer got a report about 6.50am that “a car had gone over a cliff at Ducking Stool Park, near the roundabout at the junction of Black Watch Pass and North Shore Road”.

A search on water and land at the scene did not turn up anyone injured.

The spokesman said there had been no reports of anyone attending hospital for treatment as a result of the incident.

Police asked for anyone with information, or who was in the Black Watch Pass area between 6.30am and 6.50am today, to phone 211 or the main police number at 295-0011.
