Investigation Into Nicholas and Joan Taylor Largest Of Its Type In Northants Police History
Water Safety Warning
A group of children have had to be checked over in hospital after getting into trouble swimming in open water in Northamptonshire.
Paramedics, firefighters and police were called to Denford near Thrapston on Sunday 30 June 2013 after reports the group had got into difficulties.
Northamptonshire Police have told Heart the children were "lucky this time," but still needed some medical attention.
Police are urging parents to remind children about the dangers of going into open water to try and cool down during the summer months.
This latest incident happened close to where a 15 year old died while swimming in the River Nene in July 2012.
Daniel McCullagh died on a day of soaring temperatures, when many people flocked to rivers and waterfronts to take advantage of the heatwave.
A spokesman for Northamptonshire Police said: "During the summer children are often tempted to swim or jump in the water to cool down. There can be many hidden dangers, strong currents or debris in rivers and ponds."
