A 41-year-old man from Formby has been rescued and arrested after a suspected stolen car was driven into Carr Mill Dam last night during a pursuit.
The driver of the Audi sped off as police tried to stop the car. It led to a police pursuit up the M62 through Winwick and Newton-le-Willows into St Helens.
Officers used a stop stick before the car continued onto the East Lancashire Road towards the Waterside pub in St Helens where the driver drove at speed into the Carr Mill Reservoir.
The officers involved in this pursuit and rescue acted with exceptional bravery, tenacity and professionalism to rescue the man on a bitterly cold, wet and miserable evening.
Without a second thought given to their own safety and the conditions, they entered the freezing water and dragged him through the rear of the car just before it became completely submerged.
We are extremely proud to have such outstanding officers serving for Merseyside. Police on the front line are vital in protecting our communities and the pursuit and rescue serves as a reminder of the very real dangers that officers face to keep us all safe day in, day out.

Hot on the heels of the marriage of Olympians Laura Trott and Jason Kenny, Southport swimmer Fran Halsall and St Helens rugby league star Jon Wilkin are now an item.

- Watch Granada Reports correspondent Andy Bonner's report:
It's a huge evening in rugby league as Warrington and St Helens face each other for a place in next month's Grand Final.
The Wolves have never won the Super League crown before.
That's a stat they're desperate to change this season.
In contrast Saints have won it six times, the last one coming two years ago.
For both clubs it's a must win match as neither want their season to end.
