FIREFIGHTERS mounted a water rescue mission after a van was found in a canal.

The sprinter style van was spotted about two metres from shore near Clay Lane West, Wheatley Park around 1.30am this morning.

Firefighters from Doncaster and Edlington who attended the scene contacted the water rescue boat as they feared someone may be trapped in the van.

However, the van turned out to be unoccupied.

Fighters removed the van and left the scene about 2.45am.
