We like to throw in a rescue story every now and again as a reminder that there are places where even a Land Rover driver should fear to tred…
It happened on the Brean mudflats in Somerset, U.K. Three tourists on holiday from Birmingham decided to push their Land Rover a little too far, raising the concern of a passing beach warden, who immediately called the Burnham Area Rescue Boat (BARB).
Crew members used a tractor to haul the Land Rover up the beach before the evening high tide, which was coming in rather quickly.
The vehicle's owners made a donation to the charitable rescue company to cover its costs.
"The owners had been testing out the vehicle in the mud and seemed to be completely oblivious to the danger they were putting themselves in," said BARB operations manager Steve Perks.
