Heavy Mud Rescue

With very kind permission of Roger, there was a mud rescue of a difference this week when his 35 tonne digger slipped down a bank and sunk !

Thankfully due to Rogers quick thinking and skill as a machine operator he managed to stop the the machine sinking further.

So whats the link......well Roger wanted to show how dangerous mud can be, whilst his digger is 35 tonnes the principles of a rescue is similar to those faced by us on the beach recently.

It took a bulldozer and an even bigger digger to get the machine pulled out and then just like our mud rescues ....... a lot of cleaning !
