A police spokeswoman added: “There was nobody in the vehicle, we don’t know if someone has lost control at the roundabout.”

She said it was too early to tell if the car had been stolen and the vehicle would now be recovered.

One witness said: “The windscreen wipers are still going and the car is submerged up to the door.

“You can tell it has been hotwired as they’ve pulled the wires out.

“It’s extremely unusual for a Friday morning.”
