Police were called just before midday today (Monday 27 October) after the silver Volkswagen Golf ended up in the sea, leaving her trapped. She was rescued by a local fisherman.

Firecrews and an ambulance were also called, along with the coastguard. A passenger on a nearby ferry tweeted a photo of the car still in the water, but it has since been recovered.

Ferry services weren't affected.

The woman was taken to Poole Hospital with minor injuries and suffering the effects of the cold.
