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.

Three killed in shooting at 'Halloween party'

  Three killed in shooting at 'Halloween party' Three people have been killed and nine injured after a mass shooting which reportedly took place at a Halloween party in Long Beach, California. Police and paramedics went to the scene at about 10.40pm local time on Tuesday (5.40am UK time on Wednesday) after receiving reports of shots being fired.Long Beach fire department spokesman Jake Heflin was quoted by US media as saying the suspect or suspects were still at large.He said: "It looks like it was a party, some type of a Halloween-type costume party and that seems to be where the shooting occurred."He said the victims all appeared to be in their 20s.

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.
