The body of a man was recovered from a Rishworth reservoir after his car left the road.
Police diving teams were sent to search Booth Wood Reservoir on Monday after police received reports a red car had left Oldham Road and entered the water.
The driver, who was the car’s sole occupant, was thought to be a man in his 30s.
Police said his family had been informed.
Officers and fire crews were called to the scene near the Turnpike Inn on Sunday evening at 8.20pm following reports a car had gone into the reservoir, which sits between Oldham Road and the M62.
The driver had been travelling westbound towards Rishworth before it left the carriageway next to the Inn.
The stretch of road remained closed on Monday as teams conducted their search for the man, before they later confirmed the discovery.
The vehicle remained in the water after the body was recovered.
Sergeant Adrian Newman of the Safer Roads and Neighbourhoods Support Team West said: “The underwater search team were on site this morning and first located the vehicle, before the body of the deceased was recovered at 11.55am. The family have been informed and are being supported by specially trained officers.
“We are continuing to appeal for anyone who has any information about the incident to contact police on 101, quoting 1536 of the 14/8.”
Information can be passed to the Safer Roads and Neighbourhoods Support Team West via 101.
