Digger gets stuck in the mud at Burnham Overy Staithe

It might be slow on the roads around Norfolk, but it's even slower for this digger at Burnham Overy Staithe.

A boat, a strip of sand and a swathe of salt marsh.

Look carefully and you'll see something else in this quintessential Norfolk view.

For poking out of the mud at Burnham Overy Staithe is the top half of a digger.

The machine became stuck last week, while it was working on the groynes which help prevent erosion along the tidal channel.

Contractors will have to wait until after Bank Holiday to use a larger machine to dig it out.
