From Balcony of Corisande Manor Hotel, Cornwall. The perils of taking your jeep onto the sands.

A Land Rover was testing its paces on river fording in July 2001 and stalled in the middle of the stream

With a rising tide and only half an hour to arrange a tow, the owner just managed to get pulled out as the tide got to the window level of the car

I understand a large amount of money was necessary to get the tow

Land Rover stuck in water, tide rising

Towed out, the rope stretches far off screen to the left, the tow vehicle was not risking making it two in need of a tow

To the edge of the water

I wondered if, at this point, the towing vehicle was asking for a higher fee to pull the rest of the way.
