A St Helens hackney cab was this morning stuck in the sand at Ainsdale beach, 5.30am, Saturday 6 June 2015.

The cab was reported stranded at around midnight last night.

A member of the public said:

“Surely an advanced driver should recognise they may get stuck in soft sand. I can’t understand why he would be on the beach in the first place unless he was called for a job”.

The taxi is still waiting to be towed, lets hope his poor judgement doesn’t leave him in deep water.
