Headline news in the village but was it an error of judgement, plain stupidity or trying to hide something? A Land Rover Discovery ended up in the river in the village although it didn't quite disappear under the surface and amazingly nobody saw or heard a thing.
Nobody came forward to claim the vehicle or plead guilty to driving into the river so we all surmised that it was untaxed and uninsured and somebody was simply trying to dispose of it. An expensive loss though, a local haulage company lifted the 4x4 out of the water and took it to their secure truck park but the owner still hasn't come forward to claim their vehicle.
Now it's being broken up for spares to cover the retrieval and rescue costs, no doubt the sum of the parts are far greater than the value of the whole vehicle.
