Dangers of Unsupervised Open Water Swimming

Staffordshire Police are warning people not to swim in open water as they enjoy the warm weather. It follows a number of reports about people swimming in lakes reservoirs and other water sources over the past few days.

Staffordshire Police are appealing to parents to warn their children about the dangers of swimming in unsupervised open waters. Among the biggest dangers are the sudden change in air and water temperatures and hidden hazards beneath the surface, including underwater weeds and unseen currents.
