Wirral Coastguard have issued advice around getting stuck in mud: “We would advise anyone visiting Wirral’s coastline to be extra cautious on the beach, especially around areas of soft mud.

“If you do get stuck in the mud, try and sit down to spread your weight to prevent you sinking any further.

“If you have a mobile phone, call 999 and ask for the Coastguard.

“If you don’t have a phone, attract attention by shouting help and waving your arms and get someone to call the Coastguard for you but discourage them from trying to rescue you so they don’t get stuck too!”

“If you see anyone in difficulty on the Coast, dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard”.
