TWO Moray bin men have recalled their rescue of a terrified woman and her dog from her sinking car – after she drove off a 20ft pier and plunged into the sea.

Derek Main, 35, and Gary Roberts, 43, were eating their lunch at Burghead harbour when they heard a loud revving noise followed by a massive splash.

They rushed to the water’s edge to see the shocked woman and her dog trapped in a brand new Vauxhall Corsa.

The woman was taken to Dr Gray’s Hospital in Elgin for a check-up but is not thought to have suffered any serious injuries.

It is understood that her dog is recovering at a local boarding kennel.
