Northants Police Water Safety Message

Water Safety Message

That time of year and after the lifting of some lockdown restrictions there has been a noticeable feeling of freedom. We are expecting youths to be tempted to swim in the River NENE or local lakes.

Please discourage those you know, that may be tempted.
The NENE is slow moving but the strength of the current is deceiving.
Lots of unseen underwater snags, weed and silt.
Dirty water gives risk of Weil's Disease.
Please report youths swimming near locks should they ignore safety advice, on 101
If boating please use lifejackets, especially children.
