A TEENAGER had to be rescued after venturing out into the mud of Langstone Harbour in his wellies.

The 17-year-old boy was at the Farlington Marshes with some friends yesterday when he decided he wanted to go for a walk in the harbour at low tide.

When he got about 50m away from shore he found he couldn’t move as he was up past his knees in mud.

The Coastguard responded to calls for help at about 7.45pm and pulled the teenager out after he had been stuck for about an hour.

He escaped unhurt.
