Wanted man drives into sea

A man trying to escape from police drove into the sea.

The unnamed man - who was thought to have nicked the car he was driving - stopped on the sand dunes near Perth, Australia, the Daily Mirror newspaper reports.

Police thought they had caught him until he slammed on the accelerator and plummeted into the sea.

However, he didn't get very far as the vehicle's wheels got stuck in the sand and he had to climb to safety on top of the car.
