Range Rover gets wedged in shingle at Dungeness National Nature Reserve

Another vehicle became stuck in shingle at Dungeness National Nature Reserve over the weekend. The Range Rover got its wheels wedged in the soft ground. It was only helped out of its sticky spot after a friendly fisherman and his dumper truck lent a hand and towed the vehicle out.
