Burnham-On-Sea Coastguards have rescued a person on a mobility scooter who got into difficulty on the town’s beach on Friday (March 27th).

The woman’s scooter broke down after a mechanical failure at around 10.45am at the southern end of Burnham’s beach.

It meant Burnham-On-Sea Coastguards were called out to help her, despite the country being in a state of lockdown due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
