A man who was stuck in waist-deep mud for more than an hour has been taken to hospital with suspected hypothermia, coastguards said.

The man, in his 30s, was checking boat moorings in Mylor Creek, near Falmouth in Cornwall when he got stuck.

Falmouth Coastguard said a mud rescue team with specialist equipment rescued the man.

He was taken to the Royal Cornwall Hospital for treatment.

A coastguard spokesman said a resident who lived nearby called the emergency services at about 15:00 GMT on Saturday.

He warned people to be cautious around tidal waters.
