Hunt and hounds visit Burnham-On-Sea beach during cold snap

These were the unusual scenes next to Burnham-On-Sea's lighthouse on Saturday morning (January 10th) when a local hunting group exercised its hounds on the beach.

Over 40 dogs from the Mendip Hunt ran along the sands, instead of their normal hunting area, due to the icy weather.

Hunt Master Richard Standing explained to "The ground was frozen so hard that the hounds would have cut their feet, so we took them down to Brean and ran them along the beach up to Burnham. It attracted a lot of interest from walkers."
