A car somehow ended up abandoned in a canal in the middle of a cow field - leaving police "so confused".

The empty blue car, which appears to be a Vauxhall Zafira, was spotted nose-first in the water after apparently driving across Dorney Common on June 27.

Thames Valley Police's roads policing team said they have no idea whether the car was stolen or abandoned but enquiries are ongoing to trace "how, why and where the owners have gone".

The presence of the car - and the police car with flashing blue lights - in the field prompted curiosity from the resident cows, who gathered round to see what was going on.
