University Students Rescued From Mud Slide
Two students, trapped by a mud slide while fossil hunting, have been rescued by Cowes RNLI lifeboat today.
The 20 year old woman and 21 year old man from Southampton University, had decided to explore the shore of Thorness Bay which they believed was rich in fossils. But when they discovered their way was blocked by a mud landslide near Quarry Ledge they called the Solent Coastguard for help.
First on the scene were members of the Needles coastguard unit. Then Cowes lifeboat, launched just before 2 pm, also arrived.
The mud-spattered students and their bikes were taken aboard and brought back to Town Quay, Cowes. Neither were hurt.
Five men have been questioned after shots were heard in Wimborne Road.
