Woman uninjured after North Sea car plunge

A 23-year-old woman has been rescued uninjured after her car plunged off a road into the North Sea near Peterhead.

The alarm was raised just after 05:00 and the casualty was helped from the water near the town's south breakwater before the emergency services arrived.

She was taken to Aberdeen Royal Infirmary as a precaution.

The Peterhead RNLI lifeboat was launched and the crew spent 90 minutes searching for debris. The car is to be recovered from the water later.
