EMERGENCY services were called to Southampton's Mayflower Park this week after a car entered the water.

Just after 7am on Tuesday, police received reports of a crash at the park.

A Vauxhall Corsa had entered the water and ambulance, fire crews and lifeboats were alerted.

The vehicle was recovered, along with four people who also needed to be removed from the water.

Those involved were subsequently handed into the care of the ambulance service.

A South Central Ambulance spokesperson told the Echo: "We were called at 07:10 to reports of a car in the water. 

"We sent to the scene two ambulance crews, rapid response vehicle, and an ambulance officer. 

"They were assessing four patients non of which sustained serious injuries and no one needed hospital treatment."

Now though, a 21-year-old man from Southampton has been arrested on suspicion of drink-driving.

He has been reported for summons.

A fire crew from St Mary's Fire Station attended the incident, as well as Hill Head Coastguard Rescue Team, Calshot Lifeboat and Hamble Lifeboat.
