Man dies after car plunges into river

A man has died after his car plunged into a river at Earith in Cambridgeshire yesterday evening. The police say a passer-by pulled the man, who was in his seventies, from the Nissan Note and started CPR, helped by the emergency services when they arrived.

But the man's life could not be saved. It happened close to the A1123 in Earith but the police say it was not connected to any flooding that is affecting the region.
