A vicar has praised the men who rushed to her aid when her car crashed into a pond.

The Rev Sandra Manley was driving home when her blue Vauxhall Meriva plunged into the pond in Lower Burnham Road, Latchingdon.

Mrs Manley, 57, said: “It started coming in faster and faster until it reached my window and was almost underneath my chin.”

Mrs Manley, of Fambridge Road, Althorne, feared the worst but Heybridge man Andy Hansell and his unnamed friend immediately ran to her aid.
