A man has died after his car left the road and crashed into a river.
Cambridgeshire police are appealing for witnesses following the accident at North Bank, Whittlesey.
The driver, a 50-year-old man from Northamptonshire, was pronounced dead at the scene yesterday (Monday) after the Skoda Octavia he had been in was recovered from River Nene, which runs alongside the road.
Police and emergency services were called shortly after 2.30pm to reports that a vehicle had been spotted partially submerged in the water.
The road remains closed this morning (Tuesday) while further inspections are carried out.
