A car that sunk into mud on a beach 36 years ago has resurfaced, much to the surprise of its owner.
The Vauxhall Victor 101 was lost in the mudflats of Brean Beach, Somerset, in 1973.
Beach wardens Dave Furber and Pete Williams discovered the car, owned by fishermen Terry Hart, half-a-mile from the shore.
Mr Hart said: ”I’m convinced it’s my car which I lost in 1973. We were out fishing and the tide caught us. We tried to reverse the car out but the clutch went and it was goodbye car. It’s so nice to see it back.”
