A Father and his daughter were rescued from a bog by a specialist fire water rescue unit yesterday evening.

The incident happened in Bewley Road, Bewley, when the pair became trapped after getting lost on a bike ride.

Fareham Fire Station were called to the incident around 5.20pm to assist crews from Redbridge, Bewley and Lyndhurst and were required to send their water rescue unit.

Firefighters from Fareham used inflatable mud paths to help the dad and his daughter - believed to be aged 10 - before the coastguard winched them to safety.

They were taken to Southampton General Hospital, although they are not thought to have been badly injured.

Coast guard officers from Lymington and Lee-on-the-Solent attended the scene.

A spokesperson for Hampshir Fire and Rescue said: ‘They had been out on a bike ride.

‘After abandoning their bikes, they get lost and then were stuck in a bog.

‘They were taken to hospital to be checked over as they were cold.’
