A man has died after his car plunged into the Grand Canal.

The car was seen submerged in the water at Newpark, Kilmeage, in Co Kildare at approximately 10am by a member of the public.

The body of a man in his late 20s was found in the vehicle when it was removed from the water.

His remains were taken to Naas General Hospital for a post-mortem examination.

Gardai have appealed for anyone in the area since 7pm last night to come forward.
