Police said they were called at 6.55pm on Sunday and when they arrived a blue Vauxhall Corsa was partially covered in water.

An ambulance was called but the woman driver and female passenger escaped the vehicle uninjured.

A 44-year-old woman was arrested at the scene on suspicion of drink driving.
