A 4x4 had to be winched to safety in Swansea after it got stuck in the sea, the coastguard said.

The vehicle got into difficulty in wet sand after the driver had retrieved his rigid inflatable boat at The Mumbles on Friday.

The alarm was raised at 11:45 BST, as the tide reached above its wheels.

A recovery firm pulled the 4x4 clear, with no one injured, Milford Haven Coastguard said.
