A family has paid tribute to a Cambridgeshire man who died after the car he was driving ended up in water.

Jamie Parish, 35, of Stirling Square, Godmanchester, died at the scene after his red Mercedes left the road and went into the Fort Foot Drain, Forty Foot Bank, near Chatteris, at about 11:50 BST on Thursday.

“Jamie was a much-loved husband, brother, son, grandson and a devoted father to his children. He was tragically taken too soon," the family said in a statement.

Emergency services attended and the road was closed while rescue efforts took place and the vehicle was recovered.

Police appealed for anybody with dashcam footage or information about the incident to contact them.
