Woman stuck in mud in Gillingham marina

By KentOnline reporter

A woman was brought back to shore after being found stuck in mud at Gillingham Marina late on Monday night.

The emergency services were called out to The Strand area at about 11pm after the woman was spotted in the mud as the tide was rising.

Police, paramedics, the Medway Coastguard team and the Sheerness Inshore Lifeboat were sent to the scene to see if they could help the woman.

After about an hour-and-a-half police managed to persuade the woman, thought to be in her early 20s, to come out of the mud and to safety.

She was then passed over to the care of paramedics. It was the second time the Medway Coastguard team were called out that evening.

Earlier they had been tasked to Upnor after someone reported a flare being set off at about 7.30pm.

Despite searching the area for about two hours, nothing untoward was found and the search was called off.
