A household has actually been saved from beach mudflats after having a hard time to reach the sea and attempt at low tide.

Four grownups and a kid were learning “sticky mud” at Weston-super-Mare as the tide was switching on Sunday.

Burnham Area Rescue Boat (BARB) Search and Rescue and coastguards assisted the group from the mud and took them back to the Somerset beach by hovercraft.

On Saturday, a household and their pet dog were saved at Brean Beach after their vehicle was immersed by the inbound tide.

A BARB Search and Rescue spokesperson stated the group was identified by the beach warden “learning the sticky mud” on Sunday afternoon.

“They were covered in mud and wading gradually in the scorching hot sun without any drinking water and with the tide ready to turn,” he stated.

He stated the group was checked out by paramedics and provided security recommendations about the “threat of the mud” prior to being launched.
