Boy, 6, and mother rescued from mud by Lifeboat unit
A mother and son were rescued yesterday after getting stuck in mud on the West Norfolk coast.
Lifeboat officials say the six-year-old boy was trapped up to his waist after getting into difficulty on Thornham Marshes.
The Hunstanton station's hovercraft was launched shortly after 2pm on Thursday, following a request from Coastguard teams.
The pair, who were on holiday in the area at Brancaster, were brought back to the station and left in the care of Coastguard officers.
