One car has been recovered this evening and police believe it was stolen and driven into the water deliberately.

The second car was found as police searched the waters for the first, and they say it's believed to have been driven into the water at the same time.

There was no one inside either car after they became submerged in water, police say.

The Police National Dive Squad has recovered the first car in the search today, while they'll attempt to retrieve the second car tomorrow.
