A MAN needed to be rescued after getting stuck in thick mud.

Firefighters used an inflatable walkway when the man, in his 30s, could not move in the mud in Cuckoo Lane, Hatfield.

The crews from Thorne and Askern were joined by the Technical Rescue Unit to help remove the man from what he described as being ‘quick sand’.

Police and paramedics were also called to the incident which happened at around 2.30pm on Saturday.

The man suffered no injuries, a South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service spokesman said.
