Three children were rescued by helicopter after their boat became stranded on mud.

An adult was aboard the speedboat with a 12-year-old boy and two 15-year-old girls.

The boat was stranded about two-and-a-half miles off the coast of Riverside Country Park, near Horrid Hill on the Isle of Grain.

The Sea King helicopter from RAF Wattisham, in Suffolk, was launched and winched them to safety, landing at the Riverside Country Park in Lower Rainham Road, Gillingham.
It is unclear if there were any injuries.
