Third vehicle in a week rescued from mud on Burnham-On-Sea beach

These were the scenes on Burnham-On-Sea beach on Wednesday (February 18th) when a third vehicle became stuck in mud this week and had to be rescued.

A quad bike became trapped in mud near the paddling pool on the town's beach at 10.30am while its rider was carrying out survey work.

It comes just days after a fishing boat and car became stuck on Burnham beach last Sunday, prompting a rescue by BARB, the charity that runs Burnham-On-Sea's life-saving hovercrafts.

BARB was also called to help the quad bikers pictured here on Wednesday, but a private Land Rover managed to pull the stranded machine free, much to the relief of the grateful survey team.

The latest incident comes almost a year after a very similar quad bike operated by a surveying team became stuck on Burnham beach, as reported here.
