Many thanks to Lynne in Ryde for sharing these photos from earlier today.
She got in touch to say,
“I was in Seaview today and saw an operation underway to rescue an upturned digger from the beach before the tide came in.
“Very exciting whether or not you like heavy plant!”
We’re in the process of trying to find out what happened, but in the meantime, here are Lynne’s pics.
