Kayakers rescued from Emsworth mudflats

Two kayakers had to be rescued after becoming trapped in thick mud off the Hampshire coast.

Hayling and Portsmouth coastguard rescue teams pulled the pair out of the mud close to Emsworth.

They got into difficulty on Wednesday evening after climbing out of their kayaks on to the mudflats when the ebbing tide left them stranded.

A spokesman for the coastguard said they were brought safely ashore and needed no medical attention.
