A woman driver had a lucky escape after her car ended up in an ornamental pond at the entrance to Chester Business Park.

A woman driver swam to safety when her car ended up in an ornamental pond by Chester Business Park after misjudging a roundabout.

The black Volkswagen Polo left the A483 Wrexham Road , opposite GB Group and Tetra Pak, about 7.20pm on Friday (June 2).

Photos on social media showed damage to a low wall and the car almost up to its roof in water.
