AN ABANDONED car caused an emergency response on Sunday morning after it was found partially submerged in the sea off Cambois.

The police, fire and rescue service, as well as lifeboats from Newbiggin and Blyth were called to the scene after Humber Coastguard received reports of a car in the water.

Newbiggin lifeboat, with four volunteer crew on board, was quickly on the scene, locating the car in shallow water.

After making sure there was nobody trapped inside the vehicle, the lifeboats were stood down, while the shore-based emergency services took over.
