Suspected burglar rescued from the water in Lincoln
Firefighters helped police rescue a suspected burglar from Sincil Dike, near Siemens, in Lincoln, at about 4.30am today.
The rescue followed a break-in at McColl's newsagents in Brant Road in the early hours and the man was arrested.
The rescued man was one of three suspects in a car which police were chasing.
At about 4.20am officers were called to the Brant Road Shopping Centre after a trio using a white Hyundai Coupe car were seen acting suspiciously.
Police arrived as the vehicle was being driven away and followed it until it was abandoned in the Siemens complex near Pelham Bridge.
A man, 33, and a woman, 32, were arrested almost immediately.
The third suspect, a 35-year-old man, was pulled from the River Witham.
