GLS get that sinking feeling!

GLS got that sinking feeling as one our of 25-ton Liebherr 906 excavator got bogged down at Eastriggs Cumbria!

A further 906 excavator was needed in a six-hour rescue operation after one of our diggers was submerged in a 50sq metre peat bog.  A desperate attempt by the driver to free the excavator was made but he was forced to abandon it. Luckily we managed to retrieve it the next day by laying a road and covering the surrounding areas in 25 tonnes of steel matting previously reclaimed from the site to create a road strong enough to hold the weight of the digger. Thanks to the expert work of Stuart from Rutherfords of Coldstream the next day  we were able to retrieve it, very dirty but unscathed!
