Rivers warning to youngsters

Have your say

YOUNGSTERS are being warned of the dangers of playing in or near rivers after two 13-year-olds were found playing in a brook in a dinghy.

The boys were reported to police after they were spotted in Bradwell Brook, near to Springfield Road, Bradwell.

PCSO Anthony Boswell said: “Rivers have hidden dangers and due to the amount of rain recently, the river has swollen its banks and is flowing much faster than usual. We urge youngsters not to play in or near to the river.”
