Dramatic rescue of woman trapped on top of submerged car

The woman became stranded on a beach between Mawbray and Beckfoot as the tide was coming in, and was forced to clamber to the top of her vehicle to try and escape the rising sea water. Belfast Coastguard raised the alarm at around 10.40am GMT, after they were alerted via an emergency call that the woman couldn't swim.
