A man and a woman had to be rescued by coastguards after the dinghy they were in got stuck in mud at Hopes Cove, Kingsbridge, yesterday afternoon.
A member of the Prawle Coastguard team phoned in to say that the two people had tried to wade to shore but got into difficulty just after 2pm.
A specialist 'mud team' from Teignmouth Coastguards were called.
