Have your say

A 4x4 car found itself in the River Lud in Louth this afternoon, and was captured by an eagle eyed reader.

Brian McCarthy of Binbrook called us with this picture which he captured at 3.15pm.

The car had fallen nose first into the River Lud off Riverhead, with just its back wheels on dry land, before being rescued by a forklift.
