Sun shines for beach event

T4 on the beach 2007

Whilst the rest of the country copes with effects of devastating rainfall, music fans and St John Ambulance volunteers in Weston-super-mare enjoyed glorious sunshine at Sunday's T4 on the Beach event.

Kind-hearted volunteers provided first aid support to the 400,000 strong crowd who took to the beach for the annual music event.

As well as 30 staff assisting 140 patients throughout the day in their two treatment centres and seven vehicles, volunteers also helped in the rescue of two people stuck in mud on the beach.

Thank you for all your help in assisting with the rescue of two victims trapped in the mud. We really appreciated the Land Rover you were able to supply in order to provide swift evacuation from the beach.
