The latest weather update for East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire:
Skegness RNLI's inshore lifeboat was called out when a quad biker got his bike stuck in mud on the beach at Gibraltar Point.
The RNLI"s three volunteer crew members launched just after 3pm yesterday and headed towards Gibraltar Point, four miles south of the lifeboat station.
The lifeboat arrived to find the male quad biker on the beach near his semi-submerged bike, close to the entrance of the river.
Lifeboat helmsman Joe Pieniak said he didn't think they would be able to recover the bike before it became completely submerged by the tide.
Joe said: 'When we arrived on scene we could only see the handlebars above the water. The bike was stuck solid in the mud and with the tide rising fast our initial thoughts were to abandon it and get the biker safely back to dry land.'
However, the crew worked quickly to attach a tow rope to the quad bike in an effort to salvage it and after several attempts were able to pull it free of the mud and recover it out of the water.
Crew members Will Watson and Craig Willard helped the biker push the bike back towards the sand dunes but with the rapidly rising tide they soon found they had been cut off.
The crew were left with no alternative but to abandon the bike and return to Skegness with the biker in the lifeboat.
Joe added: 'It was frustrating that we'd managed to free the bike from the mud only to find the tide had beaten us and we couldn't get it back to dry land. But the priority was always the biker, who was safe and well and reunited with his friends at the lifeboat station.'
