Coastguards called to Weston mud walker
for a man seen walking half a mile from the beach across mudflats
prompted a call-out for a team of Burnham-On-Sea Coastguards on
Tuesday (August 30th).
Five Burnham Coastguards were called to Weston beach at 4.10pm
to back up Weston Coastguards after a seafront walker alerted
the emergency services.
"The man appeared to be in no apparent difficulty, so observation
was kept on him until he returned to the beach and safety advice
was given," Burnham Coastguard Ian Jefferies told Burnham-On-Sea.com.
But the busy afternoon was not quite over for the Coastguard
team. "While driving away from the scene, we came across
an elderly man lying in the road who had fallen over and stopped
to call for an ambulance," added Ian.
