South Yorkshire Police issue water warning as hot weather looks set to continue
As the warm weather promises to continue into next month, South Yorkshire Police have issued a water warning.
A spokesman for Rotherham Neighbourhood Police Team encouraged anyone intending on swimming in open waters this summer to exercise caution.
They said: "We know it’s hot - try wearing all black and a stab vest - we know it’s fun to swim, but it’s also dangerous.
"Please please be safe around the water, no one wants to have to tell your loved ones you aren’t coming home."
