Tynemouth Lifeboat Brigade were called out last night (Saturday 5th August) to a car that was stuck in the sand at the north end of Tynemouth Long Sands.
No one was in danger but it took specialist vehicle recovery equipment to free the car and pull it back onto the ramp near The View restaurant.
Once the vehicle was safely on the entrance ramp, the owner of the vehicle made a donation towards the rescue team and thanked them for their help.
No one was hurt in the incident.

Public pledges to help restore the outdoor pool in Tynemouth have surpassed £300,000.
The Friends of Outdoor Pool confirmed they're thrilled with this figure as they strive to hit £500,000. They're planning on launching a community share scheme early next year to help fund the development at Longsands Beach.
Members of the public were asked to register their interest so the group had an idea of how much could be raised. Within three weeks, pledges shot above a quarter of a million pounds.
