cars rescued from mudflats on busy day for beach wardens
stranded vehicles were rescued from beach mudflats at Brean and
Berrow on Sunday afternoon (August 8th).
Beach wardens were called to help the stricken Range Rover pictured
here after its wheels sank into the soft sand and mud on Berrow
beach when its driver drove out too far.
warden Pete Williams told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "Local farmer
Richard Bigwood used a winch and trailer to pull the Range Rover
- which was brand new - out of the mud in return for a fee from
the vehicle owner."
added: "It was a busy day for us - a Ford Fiesta also got
stuck on Brean and several helpful people on the beach managed
to gained access to it through the sunroof and then drive it up
the beach before any damage could be done."
