At lunchtime yesterday, a request was received by firefighters from the Police to search a car that had been found partly submerged in a river.
At the time, it was unknown if anyone was inside the vehicle, which was a real concern. Firefighters from Launceston and Callington along with specialist water rescue teams from Bude and St Austell attended, along with three officers.
It was established from a local resident that the vehicle had been in the water since the storms on Saturday.
Water rescue technicians entered the river to confirm (thankfully) that there was no-one inside.
The owner of the vehicle is to arrange recovery.
