Emergency services searching Cork harbour after a car was spotted entering the water have recovered a body from a second vehicle which they discovered submerged.

Gardai confirmed that the body of Douglas Twomey (48), who had been missing since early last Tuesday, was recovered.

Mr Twomey, from Passage West in Cork, had vanished while driving his four-wheel-drive and was the focus of a garda missing person appeal.

Gardai stressed that the discovery of the four-wheel drive was unconnected to the earlier recovery of a Nissan car which was seen entering the River Lee at 5.45am yesterday.
