A man and woman were rescued after getting stuck in mud opposite Connah's Quay docks on Sunday night.

Flint Coastguard found them on the edge of a grass embankment close to the River Dee at about 21:00 BST.

The man, who had injured his ankle, had been stuck for up to an hour. The woman had been trapped for a shorter time.

Two coastguard specialist mud rescue technicians took the pair to a lifeboat on a special sled.

North Wales Police and the Welsh Ambulance Service also attended.
