A car was found submerged in a Fenland river bank last night (Thursday).
Concerns were raised by local swimmers of a vehicle that was found in the Twenty Foot Bank at March.
Neighbourhood police officers, the Cambridgeshire Fire and Rescue Service and the Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Hertfordshire Roads Policing Unit were called to the scene.
A Cambridgeshire police spokesperson said: “At around 8.20pm, we were called to the southern side of the river close to the junction of Twenty Foot Road and Graysmoor Drove.
"The road was closed for roughly two hours and no injuries were reported."
The spokesperson added: "The local water authority have been made aware."
