An AA pickup truck stuck in the sand at West Country Beach alongside the Ford C-Max it was trying to retrieve Bath City News

Earlier today, an AA van got stuck on the beach with a car it had been sent to rescue. The incident happened around 10am today (June 19) on Porth Beach, a popular tourist beach on the east side of Newquay in Cornwall.

According to viewers, this is not the first time this has happened. A witness, Lisa Hammond, says a sign “really needs to be put up”. It took a “good half hour to 45 minutes” for the two vehicles to finally clear the sand, CornwallLive reports.

“It took about eight people to finally get them out of the sand,” she explained. “First they pushed the AA van, then the car.

“Time to put up a really big sign as I think a warning is needed as this happens frequently. This is the second AA truck that has gotten stuck in the last month and the last one needed a tow truck to get it out.”

CornwallLive reported over the Easter holidays that it took half a dozen people to free a blue Volkswagen Transporter van on Porth Beach, just days after video footage emerged of a Mazda trapped there too.

In just one year, more than a dozen cars have been rescued from Great Western Beach to Newquay, leading Cornwall Council to consider putting up ‘no exit’ signs on the road to the sands.
