A husband has blamed his wife after they became stuck in the mud at a beach for 40 minutes.
Brian and Jean Garrett were taking their dogs for a run along Humberston Fitties in Lincolnshire when they ended up trapped as Jean went too close to the sea.
And Brian boldly blamed his wife for the mistake, Grimsby Live reports.
He said: "We had come down to take the dogs for a run.
"The wife ended up going the wrong way, typical woman, and I ended up following her and we got stuck in the mud for about 40 minutes.
"I would like to thank the coastguard for arriving so quickly and getting us out safely, it is much appreciated.
"We might come back tomorrow, but I don't think so."
The coastguard was called to a section of the seafront near the Humber Mouth Yacht Club after receiving reports of two people being stuck in the mud at around 3.30pm.
After they were rescued the couple were covered from head to toe in mud, and their dogs, Penny and Lucy, could be seen shivering and were left shaken by the ordeal.
Shaun Lee, the coastguard officer in charge of the incident, said: "We were paged by Humber Coastguard about two people stuck in the mud.
"When we arrived on scene we found two people stuck in the mud on the marshland, a male, a female, and two dogs, but the dogs were not stuck.
"We deployed two mud rescue techs, got to the male adult quite quickly and released him quickly.
"The woman was 30ft away seaward from the male and stuck deeper than him and was harder to rescue.
"Our biggest concern was the fact the tide coming in. While rescuing the female, water started coming in round the female and rescue team.
"Both adults were rescued and brought to the shore. They have not required medical attention and safety advice has been given."
