19 Apr #08 – VEHICLE RECOVERY – 18/04/2021
Our team was called out by Brean’s beach warden at 12.49pm to assist the driver of a Ford Fiesta car whose vehicle had become stuck on a footpath in soft sand. The driver, who was unfamiliar with the area, had become disoriented overnight and found his wheels had sunk into the soft sand, stranding the vehicle. After freeing the wheels with spades, the BARB crew used a winch on one of our tow trucks to successfully pull the vehicle up the path to a car park where it could be driven away. The grateful family thanked our volunteers and made a donation to BARB. We also kept the Coastguard updated on the progress during the call-out in case further resources were needed.
