A pregnant driver has been rescued after reversing her car off a harbour wall in the UK.

Emergency crews were called to Military Road, Ramsgate, just before 6.30pm Friday.

They found the woman trapped inside the car, which was wedged between the jetty and a pontoon.

Fire crews secured the vehicle using a winch, which allowed them to reach the driver and help her to safety.

According to the news website Kent Online, she did not suffer any injuries.

Kent Fire and Rescue Service said they would use a crane to lift the vehicle back onto the jetty.
