A body has been recovered from a car that crashed into the River Clyde near Glasgow.

The car, thought to be a blue Peugeot Horizon with a disabled sticker on the back window, was pulled from the water at around 7pm yesterday.

Earlier, the body of a woman was taken from the car, which entered the water near to Lapwing Road in Renfrew at approximately 1.20pm.

The car was seen driving "at speed" and clipping another two vehicles before breaking through the metal fence and entering the water, according to witnesses.

One local resident said: "I heard a loud noise and minutes later there were police everywhere, then the helicopter arrived. I heard that it was a woman driving alone.''
