A hovercraft from the lifeboat station at Hunstanton went out to rescue a man who was stuck in the mud yesterday.

The man had waded out to save his dog and got stuck with water up to his knewes.

The hovercraft was alongside within a minute of launching, the person was then able to pull himself clear of the mud by holding on to the hovercraft. He was taken aboard and reunited with his wife and dog on the beach and carried on with his walk. No medical assistance was required.
