A pensioner had to be rescued after her car ended up in water on a beach.
The alarm was raised just after midday in the village of Drummore, near the Mull of Galloway.
Belfast Coastguard alerted Drummore, Portpatrick, Stranraer and Ballantrae Coastguard Rescue Teams.
A Coastguard Rescue Helicopter attended and requested RNLI lifeboats from Stranraer and Port William lifeboats.
Police, fire and ambulance crews also attended.
It is unclear how the elderly woman's car ended up in the water.
The woman's son later confirmed on Facebook that she had only suffered "bumps and bruises".

"As a close relative of the casualty, it really does make me realise what a fantastic job the emergency services did here."
