Warning notices are no good

I was horrified to read in the national press recently of a woman who got stuck alone one evening for more than an hour in quicksand at Glyne Gap.

Luckily she had some plastic bags with her which she spread out and transferred some of her weight onto them, which enabled her to pull herself free. Otherwise she could have been in real trouble, as she sank further each time she moved.

A beach inspector told her that these sands move around constantly so specific warning notices are no good.
