High temperatures create parched scenes
on Berrow Beach
summer temperatures are taking their toll on the landscape around
Burnham, with mud on Berrow beach drying up and creating unusual
scenes this week.
photos - taken on Saturday (July 22nd) - show the parched mudflats
drying up and breaking into pieces.
along the beach, the mud has changed from its usual brown colour
into a white paste as water has evaporated in recent days, leaving
salt on top.
are warning people not to venture out onto the mud, though, as
beneath the dry surface lurks dangerous moist material.
are predicting more high temperatures in coming days with the
middle of the week expected to see more record highs.
