Volunteers from Flint Coastguard Rescue have been called out twice on Friday.

The team were paged by Holyhead Coastguard Operations Centre along with Rhyl Coastguard mud rescue team just after 12pm yesterday to reports of a mother and son stuck in mud near to Station Gutter Flint near the old Headland food site.

On arrival, the team found the mother and son had been helped out of the mud by passers using a rope, both casualties were safe and well and didn’t require medical attention,

They were “just both a bit muddy” and as a result were transported back to their vehicle in the car park near to Flint Castle say Coastguard Officers.

A second call came in at 3.25pm on Friday following reports of three people trapped in sinking sand on Rhyl Beach close to the harbour.

The team were stood down after receiving word from North Wales Police all three were no longer in any danger and in a place of safety.
