PICTURES: Dramatic moment as van ends up in the sea at Shoeburyness


A van has been pulled from the sea at Shoeburyness today after the coastguard cut a hole in the roof to check if there was anyone inside. 

Although the exact details aren’t clear at the moment, our reader Clare Fletcher captured a number of photos showing a jet ski going out to check the van that was adjacent to the stretch of beach by Gunners Park.

Nobody was found inside the vehicle.

Take a look at some of the pictures below!
