A police pick-up truck was left stuck in the mud on a Merseyside beach yesterday after it went venturing out in the summer heatwave to find a missing woman.

Officers from Liverpool Port Police had to abandon the truck at Crosby Beach, north of Liverpool, when its wheels became stuck in the mud in the early hours of yesterday morning.

But they were forced to abandon the truck in the sand, after the wheels became clogged up with mud and silt, in the early hours.

Jim McCormick, who lives nearby, captured the truck in its precarious position whilst out walking yesterday morning.

He said: ‘The police truck has been stuck like that since early this morning.

‘The police were looking for a missing woman but came across a dead seal instead.

‘The tide had already been in and out.

It’s probably going to take a lot more than a tow truck to get it out of there!’

Merseyside Police said the truck would be recovered as soon as the tide receded to a safe level.
