A 50 year old man from Northamptonshire's been found dead after a car crashed into a river in Cambridgeshire.

The car was found submerged in the River Nene at Whittlesey near Peterborough on Monday 2 December 2013 but it's thought the car may have been in the water since the previous Tuesday, 26 November.

The driver was pronounced dead at the scene. His Skoda Octavia has now been recovered from the river.

Police and emergency services were called shortly after 2.30pm on 2 December to reports that a vehicle had been spotted partially submerged in the water off North Bank Road.

PC Tim Kirkby, investigating, said: "I would appeal to anyone who saw the vehicle enter the water or saw it being driven along that stretch of road between Tuesday (November 26) and 2.30pm yesterday."

Anyone with any information is asked to call the Cambridgeshire Roads Policing Unit.
