A man wasn’t too happy with his wife after she apparently took a wrong turn and they both ended up stuck in the mud on a beach.

Brian and Jean Garrett got trapped when they went for a run along Humberston Fitties in Humberston, Lincolnshire, with their dogs, on Monday.

The couple spent 40 minutes in the sludge before they were rescued by emergency services.

The coastguard was called to a section of the seafront near the Humber Mouth Yacht Club after receiving reports of two people in difficulty at around 3.30pm.

After they were rescued the couple was covered from head to toe in mud, and their dogs, Penny and Lucy, could be seen shivering.

Mr Garrett said: "We had come down to take the dogs for a run.

"The wife ended up going the wrong way, typical woman, and I ended up following her and we got stuck in the mud for about 40 minutes.

"I would like to thank the coastguard for arriving so quickly and getting us out safely, it is much appreciated.

"We might come back tomorrow, but I don't think so."

Shaun Lee, the coastguard officer in charge of the incident, added: "When we arrived on scene we found two people stuck in the mud on the marshland, a male, a female, and two dogs, but the dogs were not stuck.

"We deployed two mud rescue techs, got to the male adult quite quickly and released him quickly.

"The woman was 30ft away seaward from the male and stuck deeper than him and was harder to rescue.

Her appearance at the summit comes just days after she appeared in the ITV documentary Harry & Meghan: An African Journey, where she described her past year as a member of the royal family as “hard”.Meghan said she tried to cope with the pressures of her new life since marrying the Duke of Sussex in May 2018 by putting on a “stiff upper lip”.But she said she was not prepared for the intensity of the tabloid interest.

Mr Lee said his biggest concern was the incoming tide.

“While rescuing the female, water started coming in round the female and rescue team,” he said.

The couple did not require medical attention but Mr Lee confirmed they were given advice on the dangers of muddy beaches.
