The occupiers of the narrowboat, Golden Eagle, got a surprise while making their way up the River Avon - they hit a submerged Land Rover.
West Merica Police are trying to trace the owner of a red Land Rover following a collision with a narrowboat on the River Avon.
Those on board the Golden Eagle were meandering up the River Avon when they crashed into the submerged vehicle at the rear of Cleeve Prior.
The concerned boaters contacted the police.
Both officers with West Merica and the Hereford and Worcester Fire Service attended the scene.
A tractor was used to remove the Land Rover from the River Avon.
Once on land, the vehicle was thoroughly searched by officers.
No one was found inside.
