front wheels of the Volkswagen sank into soft sand and mud next
to Burnham jetty while its owner attempted to recover a jet ski.
tractor from rescue charity BARB (Burnham Area Rescue Boat) was
called and the vehicle was quickly hauled to safety.
owner Martin Barnard said: "I have used the beach here many
times before but misjudged the mud while trying to recover my
jet ski. I was very grateful for the help of BARB."
Barnard made a donation to BARB to cover its costs. The charity
assists with car rescues where there is concern that people may
put themselves in danger by attempting to reach vehicles.
