This is contrary to warnings from the Police for a number of years.

Now, in a warning to those tempted to take to the water Insp Nick Cook of Gloucestershire Constabulary said: “It can be very tempting to cool off with a dip in water as the summer temperatures soar. But although bodies of water may look appealing and even safe, strong currents, hazardous objects, and pollution mean they often hide much less obvious dangers.
“Water such as reservoirs or lagoons can be very cold, even in the summer months, and people suddenly entering cold water are susceptible to hyperventilation, which could result in the body going into seizure
There can also be hidden currents and unseen dangers such as mud banks or items under the water which a swimmer can become caught on.
