Pictured: Stranded van rescued from sea on Burnham beach

These were the scenes in Burnham-On-Sea on Saturday morning (August 25th) when a beach cleaning vehicle was pulled to safety after getting stuck in the sea.

BARB (Burnham Area Rescue Boat) sent its tractor to the town's beach, near Maddock's Slade, where Sedgemoor District Council's beach cleaning van was surrounded by the incoming tide after staff attempted to recover the carcass of an animal washed up on the beach.

Beach lifeguards and crews from BARB used a tractor, which itself briefly became stuck, to tow the stranded vehicle from the water. No-one was hurt.
