Stuck driver rescued from Cold Knap beach pebbles in Barry
A driver became stuck on pebbles at a beach near Barry and had to be rescued by coastguards.
Barry Coastguard said the man had driven on to the pebbles at Cold Knap beach at about lunchtime on Sunday.
A recovery vehicle was used to get the car back to the road. South Wales Police attended and checked the driver and vehicle.
A spokesperson for Barry Coastguard said the man was not seeking help or suffering from medical conditions.
"We don't want people to second-guess themselves," they said.
"Even a few minutes' hesitation by those in distress, perhaps holding off on a call because they're worried about getting a bill for hundreds of pounds, could mean the difference between life and death.
"The Coastguard doesn't charge."
