Missing Vauxhall Corsa ends up on Mumbles beach after ship alert

A car which went missing in the sea after it was parked on a slipway ended up on a beach.

Coastguards were earlier broadcasting a special alert to shipping in the Bristol Channel to look out for the Vauxhall Corsa.

The vehicle, believed to be a hire car, was submerged after it was parked in Mumbles, Swansea on Monday.

It later reappeared near Mumbles pier, where it was bobbing up and down in the water.

Swansea Coastguard had earlier said it could be anywhere in the channel and they were waiting for the next low tide to help police and recovery teams locate it.

The silver 61-plate Corsa was later recovered from the nearby beach.
