Parked car swamped by high tide in Brightlingsea
12:05pm Friday 19th October 2012 in News
A DRIVER was caught out by a high tide in Brightlingsea.
The motorist had left their car on The Hard by the waterfront, but a seasonally high tide meant the sea crept up onto the road.
One eyewitness, Richard Laker, spotted the blue Citroen being swamped with water.
Mr Laker said: “The inside of the car had taken in the water but I'm told the car started first time when the owner came back at low tide. But they did have to get the standing water back out again.”
