Police were called to the scene after a vehicle slipped into the sea last night in Spinola Bay. 

The car, a Honda Accord, slid to the end of a ramp in Xatt is-Sajjieda, with footage showing a man leaving the car as it submerged beneath the surface. 

The man reportedly explained to Lovin Malta that he ended up driving into the sea because he was following Google Maps. 

The Malta Police Force’s Communications Office told Malta Daily that the driver lost control of his car and exited the vehicle on his own accord.

A tow truck called in to remove the vehicle afterwards and no injuries were sustained. Investigations are currently under way.

Inter vs Milan ends in a stalemate after dramatic match

Nov 8 2021 Share

Yesterday night, the infamous Derby della Madonnina between Inter and AC Milan ended in a 1-1 stalemate. As usual, the derby was filled with drama and was intense throughout the match. The draw means that Inter  are still 7 points below league leaders Napoli and AC Milan, a situation they would have liked not to still be in. The result for the Rossoneri wasn’t as bad, as they still stood on top of the table and are still unbeaten.

The game started well for both teams, but even better for Inter as in the 11th minute former Milan player Hakan Çalhanoğlu won the Nerrazzuri a penalty. Despite all the pressure of facing his old side, Çalhanoğlu stepped up in front of Milan’s infamous Curva Sud and converted the penalty to the delight of the Inter fans. Inter’s lead didn’t last long as in the 17th minute AC Milan were awarded a free kick, a free kick that led to a Stefan De Vrij own goal to give Milan the equalizer. In the 27th minute, Inter were awarded another penalty because of a bad tackle from Fodé Ballo-Touré on Matteo Darmian but this time wasn’t converted by Lautaro Martinez.

The second half was mostly dominated by Inter. They looked like the more confident team, creating multiple chances that arguably should have been scored by players such as Arturo Vidal and Nicolo Barella. The last 10 minutes of the game flipped sides, as Milan were dominating, pressing high in search for a dramatic late winner. Unfortunately for the Rossoneri the winner didn’t come,  the game ended in a 1-1 draw with both sides wondering what could have been had they been more clinical.
