The luxury 4x4 could be seen on the opposite bank by people using the Great Stour Way cycle path.

Officers went to the scene and found the vehicle abandoned and are trying to trace the owner.

No injuries have been reported.

Adam Hopkins, who manages Cycles UK in the city, saw the vehicle while walking his dog this morning.

"It was quite gloomy and it was the flashing hazard lights which caught my attention.

"I can only think that the driver must have lost control on the bend on the A28 and gone through the fence and down the river bank.

"I could also see that both airbags had gone off."
