Beware of the dangers of water – children can drown even in shallow water so be extra careful of your kids near paddling pools, ponds, rivers, the sea & swimming pools this summer. Older children can also be at serious risk when playing in or near water!
During the school holidays, and in particular in hot weather, increasing numbers of children put themselves at risk of drowning. On average 40-50 children drown per year in the UK.
