More good work from the Island’s coastguards as they extracted a woman who had become stuck in the mud on the cliff below Sandown Bay Holiday Centre, between Culver and Yaverland.
She had been walking and fossil hunting with her boyfriend, before becoming stuck. He boyfriend went to call assistance.
The Ryde, Bembridge and Ventnor Coastguard Rescue teams were all in attendance to lend a helping hand.
The Ventnor team are currently defined as the Mud specialists, meaning that they have equipment to assist as well as additional skills.
Coastguard Watch Manager Colin Griffiths said, “Thanks to the skill of our mud and cliff rescue teams, the lady was rescued swiftly from the mud.
“We’ve had lots of rain recently and that’s made some of our coastal areas very muddy, so even if you know the area please be careful.”
