A hapless driver returned to his car to find it almost fully submerged underwater - with sailing boats cruising past it.

The unsuspecting driver had parked the car on a riverside road in Norfolk on Sunday - seemingly unaware that high spring tide would soon render the area more suitable for boats than for vehicles.

Bizarre photos show bemused sailors cruising past the near-drowned silver car, which appears to have its front, driver-side window left open as the water rose around it.

One image even shows a man in a speedboat approaching the car - seemingly trying to work out a way to rescue it.

The car was caught in the rapidly-rising tides on the Holkham estate, just down the road from Burnham Overy Boathouse.

Tim Gatti, who manages the boathouse, has warned other drivers to be wary of the high tides - which happen twice a day and, most of the time, will flood that bit of the road.

Tim, 70, who has worked at the boathouse for the last five years, said: 'There are signs in place around that area telling drivers that it is not a formal car park, and should not be treated as one.

Back then this colourful industry was still very much in its pomp, made buoyant by the growing momentum of the Italian economic miracle (and its attendant industrialisation) plus a wealth of homegrown talent. Nowhere else could you find such a happy blend of artistic and technical skill when it came to styling and fabricating motor-car bodywork.

'Unfortunately, some people do not know about the tides, and they turn up and think they're parking next to a little river - and then later, are very surprised.

'People need to bear in mind this is not just a gentle little river - this is a tidal estuary.

'We get high tides twice a day, and most high tides will flood that bit of road. It is not always as bad as that - the tide varies each day.'

Tim added that the drowned car on Sunday is by no means an isolated incident.

He said: 'It is not just visitors who fall foul of the tide on that road - locals do it too.

'They'll park their cars there and then later realise and feel silly about it.

'I'd say we've had more incidents this summer because lots of tourists have been flocking to the coast for a holiday during the Covid pandemic.

'I've seen it happen about five times this summer.

'This particular car was completely flooded. It took about a day to get a recovery vehicle down to rescue it.'

Alpina B3 Touring 2020 UK review .
Buchloe's take on the BMW M340i Touring is a 456bhp, 516lb ft super-estate that melds finesse and ferocity to astonishing effectTake it as read that the 3 Series Touring now feels ideally sized for fast family-car duties. There’s plenty of space inside and you get a real sense of maturity on the move, but the car avoids the occasional awkwardness that comes with driving something as large as the 5 Series Touring – or Alpina’s V8-engined B5 Touring – through towns and along B-roads.
