The man had been fishing on Tynemouth Longsands when he got his car stuck in the sand after driving it on to the beach on Thursday morning.

He called emergency services for help when the tide started coming in and they managed to bring the vehicle to safety.

Unfortunately for the caller, he was found to be driving without a licence and insurance and has been sent to court, police said.

At about 7am this morning we received a call from a man who had been fishing on Tynemouth Longsands.

He reported that he had got his car stuck in the sand after driving it on to the beach. Emergency services attended and the car was brought to safety.

However, it was found the vehicle had no insurance and so it has since been uplifted by officers.

The 32-year-old man who made the call has also been reported to court for the offences of driving with no insurance and driving without a licence.
