An­other 4x4 gets stuck in the sand

Llanelli Star - - NEWS - John Cooper

THE trend for am­phibi­ous ve­hi­cles on South Wales beaches con­tin­ued this week, with an­other 4x4 get­ting stuck in the sand.

This time it was fur­ther along the coast at Burry Port, rather than Llanelli.

The car, thought to have been a white Jeep, was spot­ted stranded and at the mercy of the tide on Wed­nes­day.

It is be­lieved to have been sub­merged at least twice be­fore be­ing towed away.

Last Wed­nes­day, a ve­hi­cle was aban­doned on the sand at Llanelli, where it was al­most to­tally un­der­wa­ter when the tide came in.

The same trac­tor that res­cued the Land Rover from North Dock beach in Llanelli is be­lieved to have been used for the re­cov­ery op­er­a­tion at Burry Port as well.

Llanelli po­lice tweeted to say that the Land Rover had been used for an­ti­so­cial be­hav­iour be­fore be­ing aban­doned on the beach. #dough­nut was used to de­scribe cir­cu­lar tyre tracks left by the Land Rover in the sand.

Driv­ers were warned against us­ing unau­tho­rised ve­hi­cles on North Dock beach by Llanelli po­lice, who said:

“Just a po­lite re­minder that unau­tho­rised ve­hi­cles should not be used on North Dock beach.

“This one was be­ing used to cause ASB be­fore it got stuck.”

The ve­hi­cle was al­most sub­merged at one point.
