Abandoned car in Appleby river


Police were alerted to reports of an abandoned car in the Appleby River earlier this morning.

Police Communications Manager Barbara Dunn says the police are currently arranging the car’s extraction from the river.

“It appears that somebody has dumped the possibly stolen car in the river.”

“We think it was dumped there overnight but we are still working to establish all those facts.”

Police are asking anyone with information to come forward.
