Portland Coastguard have rescued a 36 year old woman who got stuck in mud on the east side of Lulworth Cove, Dorset for over an hour.
The call was received at 11:34 hrs (Sun, 27th Feb) from Dorset Fire and Rescue, reporting that a woman was stuck in mud up to her thighs.
Lulworth Coastguard Rescue Officers, Weymouth RNLI inshore lifeboat, Coastguard Rescue helicopter Rescue 104 and Dorset Ambulance were sent to this remote corner of the cove. The lifeboat was used to transport specialist personnel from the fire service to the scene. She was eventually released by using high pressure water jets.
Portland Coastguard Watch Officer Roger Hoare said:
"Walkers should enjoy our coastline but be aware that there are hidden dangers, particularly after recent heavy rains. If you're heading out check time and tides and make sure you know where to take extra care."
