Two rescued from mud on Thames shore in Greenwich

Two people have been rescued after getting stuck in mud beside the Thames in Greenwich.

Staff from Greenwich and Lambeth fire stations alongside the police and river services worked together to rescue the pair.

The Thames attracts quite a few visitors for a wander beside the shore though the pair appeared someway from the sandy areas during a low tide. The area the rescue occurred is around Enderby Wharf.

Yesterday saw a particularly high tide necessitating the Thames Barrier’s closure before today’s low tide.

    Great local reporting John, glad the couple are safe, often see people walking along by Enderby at the river margins, hope this doesnt cause them to restrict entry for others. Well done to the Emergency Services, a good call out for them, great training opportunity too! Good on yer guys (and gals)
