07 Aug #22 – KAYAKERS IN MUD – 07/08/2020
Two kayakers were flown to safety on BARB’s rescue hovercraft and Coastguards at Brean beach this afternoon. The beach warden raised the alarm at 2.45pm after spotting a man and woman in mud about half a mile from the top of the beach on the falling tide. Burnham’s BARB Seach & Rescue hovercrafts were called to the scene by Coastguards and flew out to the man and woman, who are on on holiday from Doncaster. They were safely taken onboard the hovercraft by the Coastguard Mud Rescue Team and flown up the beach to safety where they were checked over and confirmed to be unhurt. This was a great result to a multi-agency incident.
