The car was reportedly partly submerged – but not fully. The police said it appeared a woman had suffered a slight injury and an ambulance attended.

The car was recovered and road cleared at about 11.45pm.

The Hunstanton Coastguard Rescue Team attended the scene too and team members then entered the water to stabilise the vehicle for recovery.

Once the vehicle had been recovered all teams stood down and the car was removed by a Tears recovery crane.
