Three cars get stuck during busy holiday week for beach wardens

Beach wardens in Brean have been kept busy over the Half Term holiday period, with THREE vehicles getting stuck in soft sand and mud.

Over the past week, fast flowing tides have caught out several mototists - including this one here.

Brean beach warden Dave Furber told "Fortunately, the car's occupants managed to walk away safely, but the vehicle was completely covered by the sea several times before it was taken away by the local council."

Beach wardens have also seen a BMW and a Jeep get into difficulty in recent days, although neither was completely engulfed by the sea as this one here.

It follows a similar incident on Burnham-On-Sea beach last Sunday when a van became trapped in soft sand and could not be rescued before the incoming tide.
