Woman trapped in mud at Lulworth Cove is rescued

A walker was rescued in Dorset when she became stuck up to her thighs in mud.

Emergency services were called on Sunday after the 36-year-old woman became trapped on the east side of Lulworth Cove.

An RNLI lifeboat was used to transport firefighters to the remote part of the cove where they used water jets to clear the mud and free the woman.

Coastguards warned walkers to beware of boggy areas following heavy rainfall in recent weeks.

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."
