A stolen Discovery Landrover is stuck in the mud by Chiswick Bridge. The Port of London Authority say it went into the river on Saturday night from a local slipway, probably from one of the rowing clubs. They suspect the thieves drove it along the mud at low tide and abandoned it once it got stuck.

“Unfortunately any modern vehicle is usually a write off once it’s submerged” said PLA spokesman Martin Garside.

The police have been and checked it out and recovery will now be a job for the insurance company.
