Even Land Rovers can get stuck in the mud!

Rescue services were called to help a driver and passenger that were left stranded in their vehicle, which became stuck in the mud on the banks of the river Thames in Chiswick, London.

The incident took place last Friday during which the London Fire Brigade used mud paths to reach the stranded pair.

A recovery vehicle towed the Land Rover back to dry land.

Chiswick fire station manager Gareth Cook said: “It appears that the driver wanted to show off his new car but got into trouble when his four wheel drive got stuck in mud.

“We safely rescued the pair and the car was recovered by a road recovery service.

“The incident shows that it’s not just fires that we deal with and our advice to anyone deciding to go off road is to make sure they check their vehicle can deal with the terrain.”
