A woman has been rescued after getting trapped up to her waist in mud in the New Forest.

A friend of the 61-year-old raised the alarm after she sunk in mud while walking close to Beaulieu Road near Lyndhurst shortly before midday.

Fire crews from Fareham successfully got her out.

A South Central Ambulance Service spokesman said she was treated for the effects of cold but was otherwise unhurt.
