We can confirm we attended at New Ferry Pier last night, Thursday, 12 September, to reports a car was driven into the water.
Emergency services were called, along with the coastguard, just before 7.30pm, with police officers first to attend.
A police officer entered the water and removed a woman from the car as the car began to sink further, he was assisted by a second officer.
The ambulance service attended and the woman, in her forties, was taken to hospital where she was assessed and detained under the Mental Health Act.
