Lincolnshire Police name teenager killed in car plunge

A 16-year-old boy who died after the car he was travelling in plunged into a dyke in Lincolnshire has been named by police.

Jack Brennan, from Great Dunmow in Essex, was in a Citroen Xsara Picasso when it went into the water at Midville Road, Stickney, on 20 August.

A two-year-old girl who was also in the car remains in hospital in a serious but stable condition.

The female driver and two other boys, aged 14 and 15, managed to escape.

The toddler is suffering from severe shock and has been transferred to the Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham.

Her mother, a 39-year-old woman from Dunmow, was driving the car at the time of the crash.

The first police officer at the scene entered the water and swam to the car and managed to free Jack. He was worked on by paramedics but died a few hours later at hospital.

Police have urged anyone who was in the area and remembers seeing the car before or during the incident to contact them.
