Woman waist deep in seawater rescued

A woman has been rescued after becoming trapped up to her waist in seawater as the tide came in on a Lancashire beach.

The woman, who has not been named, was walking her dog when she got stuck close to the Sandside Caravan Park in Bolton-le-Sands at about 12:40 BST.

The coastguard alerted the RNLI hovercraft to the area - known for its fast-flowing tides - and she was freed.

Police said the middle-aged woman was checked over by paramedics but did not require hospital treatment.
