RNLI lifeguard supervised a multi-agency mud rescue on Leasowe Bay Beach
A Wirral lifeguard spotted a member of the public stuck in the mud at Leasowe Bay on Monday 22 July and alerted the UK coastguard at 12:30pm.
If you find yourself stuck in mud on a beach or elsewhere, it is advised to stay calm, not struggle and to spread your weight. If you, or someone else, finds themselves stuck in mud, it's important that you carry a means for calling for help.
