Gardaí searching for a man after a car went into the water in Arklow Harbour in Co Wicklow have recovered a body.

The body was found at Clogga Beach.

A crane was used to recover the car, which went off the South Quay at around 6am.

A woman, who is in her mid-20s, was rescued from the water this morning.

She is being treated at St Columcille's Hospital in Loughlinstown and is said to have non-life threatening injuries.

It is understood the car belonged to the woman.

It has not been established who was driving when it entered the water.

The area was cordoned off and teams from the sub-aqua unit, as well as the coast guard, local gardaí and emergency services, were at the scene.
