Schoolboy, 14, drowns at waterfall on hottest March day in 50 years


A SCHOOLBOY drowned after getting into difficulty at a waterfall on the hottest March day in 50 years.

The 14-year-old was spotted struggling in a pool below Goit Stock Waterfall in Cullingworth, near Bradford, West Yorkshire, yesterday.

The picturesque cascade and pool is popular with wild water swimmers.

It is thought the teenager was taking a dip as temperatures reached 21C in the first week of the Easter school holidays.

A West Yorkshire Police spokesperson said: “Police were called just after 6pm yesterday evening (30 March) to reports of a concern for safety at Goit Stock waterfall off Hallas Lane, Cullingworth.

“A 14-year-old male had entered the water.

“Emergency services attended, including fire service, ambulance and underwater rescue teams and recovered a body from the water.

“There are not thought to be any suspicious circumstances and a file has been prepared for the coroner.”
