It was only a week-or-two ago that we shared a story about a Lincolnshire police buggy that got stuck in the sand.
But, for some reason, ‘fate’ seems to have taken a disliking to the buggy in question because now it has been claimed by the sea!
Today, the DailyMail shared a story about how the Lincolnshire Police ‘all-terrain vehicle’ ended up being swept out into the north sea after it was marooned on the beach.
Apparently, officers had been using the buggy to patrol the beaches of the Lincolnshire Coast over the Bank Holiday weekend.
But after the buggy-crew left their vehicle to go and speak to some members of the public, one of them had overlooked the tide times as the north sea slowly laid claim to its treasure.
Initially, the officers had come back to find that the buggy was stuck in the sand. But the north sea could not wait for them to recover it, so she took the buggy for herself.
Inspector Matt Bennison said:
‘Yesterday afternoon one of our off-road vehicles became stuck in the sand at Ingoldmells beach.
‘The vehicle had been patrolling our beaches following a large number of reports that people had travelled from outside of the county for a walk on the beach.
‘Unfortunately, the vehicle couldn’t be recovered, it was taken into the sea by the tide, and we are now working to recover the vehicle.’
