A MAN was rescued from the mud at Farlington Marshes.

He became stuck in the mud at 5.30pm yesterday evening after falling out of his boat.

Steve Mann, a watch officer at Solent Coastguard, said the man was stuck up to his knees.

The service sent both the Portsmouth and Hill Head specialist coastguard mud teams to rescue the man.

Portsmouth Inshore Lifeboat attended and pulled him out of the mud.

He was safely ashore by 6.10pm.
