Laois Offaly Garda Division and Offaly Fire Services rushed to the Grand Canal in Edenderry on Sunday morning December 6 where a car had entered the water in dangerous conditions.

Firefighters entered the icy cold water but Gardai have said no one was injured in the incident.

They urged drivers to take care over the coming days and weeks as temperatures plummet and driving conditions worsen.
