A man was rescued after becoming stuck in mud 250 yards out from the shore at Morecambe.

A spokesman for Morecambe lifeboat crew said the man had walked out from the Yacht Club slipway on the Promenade on Sunday morning when he became trapped.

Emergency services were called at around 11.30am and he was rescued by a fire crew who reached him using a walkway.

The man was taken to shore by the hovercraft because he was cold and taken to hospital.
