Five escape after car plunges into Forth

A 56-year-old man and four girls escape injury after their car fell about 2m (7ft) into the water from a promenade in Fife.

A 14-year-old girl managed to climb out before the car slipped from the promenade in Burntisland, while three others, aged 10, 13 and 14, managed to get ashore before the RNLI arrived.

Two members of the public helped free the man, who was struggling with a leg brace.
