Two people had to be pulled out of the water after getting into difficulties at Lakeside last night.

The two males were rescued by firefighters who used a boat to get to them at the lake at Lakeside, off Stadium Way, Doncaster.

The incident happened at around 9.30pm last night, with crews from Doncaster, Edlington and Rivelin fire stations called out to assist the pair.

A spokesman for South Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service said both of the people involved were successfully rescued, with a boat used to reach them.
