A crew from BARB search and rescue were called out to free the Volkswagan Polo after the beach warden alerted the Coastguard at 2.50pm.

The two occupants of the vehicle – a couple from Bristol who have not been named – came into difficulties after the car’s wheels sank into the mud and the car became stranded about half a mile down the beach.

Volunteers from BARB soon arrived and towed the car to safety before the tide came in.

The driver of the Polo thanked the volunteers and the beach Warden for rescuing him and his partner.
