Ice cream van rescued from sticky situation on Burnham beach!

Volunteers from Burnham-based rescue charity BARB were called to help this ice cream van when it became stuck on the town's beach on Sunday morning (April 17th).

The vehicle's rear wheels sank into the soft sand next to the town's jetty and BARB's tractor, which was nearby, was used to pull it free.

Ice cream van owner Puwcao Fabrizio said: "I was very grateful for BARB's help after this unfortunate accident and have made a donation to cover their costs. Without their help, I would have been selling ice cream to the fish when the tide reached me!"

BARB volunteer Mike Lowe added: "We were happy to help pull the vehicle free. It was another reminder about the potential dangers of soft sand and mud on our beaches."
