Mum and son who died after car found submerged in pond near RAF base pictured

A mum and son who died after their car was found submerged in a pond have been pictured for the first time.

Vivien Radocz, 28, and her eight-year-old son Milan were found inside a blue Ford Focus at the rear of RAF Wittering, Cambridgeshire Police said.

Police were called to the scene of the incident at about 6.20pm on Saturday, September 3.

The force said the vehicle was discovered on Saturday next to Old Oundle Road, but it was "unclear" how long it had been in the water for.

Emergency services - including police, fire crews and paramedics - attended the incident and removed the woman and child from the vehicle.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene, while the boy died in hospital after being taken for treatment.
