& Rescue shortly after 1.30pm when the vehicle's front wheels
sank into the wet sand on the high tide line.
lines were attached to the stranded vehicle by BARB's volunteer
crewmembers and a tractor was used to haul the lorry free, as pictured
owners were very grateful for BARB's help and made a kind donation
to cover our charity's costs," said Mike Lowe, BARB Operations
added: "BARB advises drivers on the beach to keep their vehicles
on the hard sand, check the tide times and heed the warning signs
- but on this occasion the horse box driver was just unlucky."
