Efforts launched to try and save Range Rover from the sea after it is found on Blackhall beach
A Range Rover owner worked against the incoming tide as he tried to recover the vehicle as it was consumed by the sea.
The black 4x4 was found on the beach at Blackhall, on the East Durham coast, today, Wednesday, June 2.
It is understood it had been taken earlier, with its owner on hand on to try and save it from the waves using a rope – but the incoming tide caused problems for the recovery efforts.
Kelly Nelson shared photos of the incident.
She said: "I was out for a walk this afternoon and saw it floating in the water.
"I took a few pictures then on the way back down the owner was trying to pull it out, with no luck.
"The owner was devastated poor man, he was freezing trying to get it out.”
