I THINK WE'VE BEACHED IT......An idiotic motorist drove his sports car on to a beach to take a picture of it by the sea - only for it to get stuck and submerged by the incoming tide.  The driver and his friend decided to take the BMW convertible down onto the sand during a weekend trip out to enjoy the sunshine.<br />
<br />
However, it got bogged down and despite their desperate attempts to rescue it, were unable to drive it off the beach before the tide came in.  The water-logged vehicle was first spotted by dog walkers early yesterday morning.<br />
<br />
By the evening, the silver 3 series - complete with sporty bucket seats and worth approximately £7,000 - was later covered by seawater in Southampton Water, Hants.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
