It certainky looks like it. Call Mr. Suspicious though, but even allowing
for the obviously well frozen ground there seems to be no disturbance of
the ground made by the vehicle getting to where it got "stuck".......

dunno. 's hard to tell.

I think what happened is that they screwed up the original recovery, got it
into an unwinchable position - about picture 4 from the top. The only way
they could winch it from there is by using an enormously long rope from a
long way back. At that point I think they decide the only way out is
forwards, so they've attached a cable to the front and run it across the
lake, then they let it into the lake and winch across - you can see the
cable in the wide angle shots of the lake.. Looks like the almost lost
C99... into the water as well, but managed to winch that back again.


They then appear to have found they couldn't get it out the other side, and
called up the excavator to haul it up the other bank.

Apart from the glass and the bumper, it looks to have survived quite well.

Well, up to a point, Lord Copper. I'm glad it isn't mine.

I guess that's the big difference. A Land Rover in that condition looks
well used or, at worst, a project. A J**p or any other Japcrap just looks a
wreck.

Looks like one chap tried to drive across the top of a bank, got
stuck, they tried to winch it down but it rotated through 90 degrees
and went down the wrong side. They then tried to tow it through the
lake (probably in "**** it" mode by that point) but the winch on the
vehicle in the lake came off when it was close to the other side.
Hence the JCB.

That's my reading of it anyway!
