A man has been rescued from mud this afternoon after his stepfather called the coastguard to say his stepson had become stuck in mud whilst walking towards Flamborough and the sea was only two metres away.
Humber Coastguard received a 999 call just after 4pm today. Coastguard Rescue teams from Filey, Bridlington, Scarborough and Burniston, who specialise in mud and cliff rescue, were sent to the scene and the RNLI lifeboats from Filey and Flamborough were asked to attend.
The man was found in a very inaccessible location he was reached by a Coastguard Rescue Team from Filey who managed to extract him from the mud. Because of the incoming tide he had to be evacuated by sea and so was taken by lifeboat to the shore at Filey where he received medical assistance.
