A COLD Ash water rescue turned out to be a false alarm yesterday evening (Sun), after a car was spotted in a pond.

Fire, ambulance and police were called at 9.30pm following reports of a car which had left the road between Cold Ash and Bucklebury.

A passer-by reported the incident, after spotting the car had left the road and was in a pond.

On arrival, fire services found the occupants had evacuated the car, despite water being half way up the door.

No-one was hurt.

Emergency services left the scene after less than one hour.
