Mud rescue rehearsed at Berrow by BARB and Burnham Coastguards

Crews from Burnham-On-Sea's BARB Search & Rescue and Burnham Coastguard took part in a major joint training session on Sunday (April 23rd) to rehearse a beach mud rescue at Berrow.

The mud rescue exercise took place ahead of the start of the busy tourist season beginning.

BARB's hovercrafts were used to reach a hostile casualty and an unconscious casualty far out on the mudflats.

"This annual training exercise is always a great multi-agency session with close team working which acts as a valued refresher for the crews just before the tourist season," said a spokesman.

In the event of a coastal emergency, always call 999 and ask for the Coastguard.
