Dorset walker gets stranded in mud


Despite warnings, people are risking their lives by getting stuck in the mud on Swanage beach.

The area of the beach, situated near recent landslips, has become a waterlogged mix of mud and sand and is extremely dangerous.

A walker was rescued by Dorset Fire and Rescue on Friday after ignoring the warning signs and getting stranded in the mud.

Further wet weather in January made the situation worse, with significant landfalls to the north of Ocean Bay, particularly in the section between Burlington Chine and Sheps Hollow. The ground is waterlogged, making the cliff unstable and at risk of further falls of rock and clay.
