Swimming in the river near Sysonby Grange and at Melton Country Park

Alert message sent 26/06/2020 09:34:00

Information sent on behalf of Leicestershire Police

Dear Citizen

Whilst on patrols over the past couple of days, I have spoken with multiple groups of children swimming/diving into the river near Sysonby Grange and at Melton Country Park.

Whilst I understand it’s hot! Jumping from a train bridge into the river is dangerous!

Swimming/diving at the Melton Country Park is also against the council’s park bye-laws, not only does it disturb wildlife at the park, it’s also not monitored by a lifeguard and therefore is also dangerous!

If you have a child who goes out with their friends unsupervised, please speak to them about the dangers of partaking in these activities, such as the unknown obstacles that may lay beneath - thank you.

We are patrolling these areas and we will speak with anyone we see doing this, we don’t want to be killjoys, we are just concerned for peoples safety.

Please help us to look after you.

Thank you for reading.
