A pregnant driver has been rescued after she reversed her car off a harbour wall.

Emergency crews were called to Military Road, Ramsgate, just before 6.30pm, after the woman drove her vehicle off the seafront, Kent Fire and Rescue Service said.

The woman – who is pregnant – was trapped inside the car, which was wedged between the jetty and a pontoon.

Fire crews secured the vehicle using a winch, which allowed them to get to the woman and remove her to safety.

Kent Fire and Rescue Service said they would use a crane to lift the vehicle back onto the jetty.
