A six-year-old boy who was rescued from a car which crashed into the River Avon in Evesham has been discharged from hospital.

Ryan Grady and five-year-old sister Gabrielle were airlifted to Birmingham Children's Hospital on Thursday after the vehicle entered the River Avon from a field at Boat Lane in Evesham.

Both children were critically ill and Gabrielle, who was trapped in the submerged car for almost two hours, died at around 1.30pm on Sunday.
Ryan is "recovering quite well" and was discharged on Sunday, according to police.

Father Chris Grady, 41, appeared before magistrates in Worcester on Saturday charged with two counts of attempted murder.

Gabrielle's death means the case is now a murder investigation.

A spokesman for South Worcestershire Police said: "Our thoughts remain with the family at this difficult time and we would again emphasise that they have asked the media to respect their privacy at all times."

Worcestershire Coroner Geraint Williams has been informed of Gabrielle's death and a post-mortem examination is expected to take place in Birmingham on Wednesday.

Christopher Grady will appear at Worcester Crown Court on Thursday.
