Crummock Water near Buttermere has also been the scene of a multi-agency search by Cumbrian emergency services since Friday afternoon after a 30-year-old man from London went missing.

It is believed he had got into difficulties with a friend who had been rescued from the water.

And in Carlisle, tributes were paid for teenager whose body was found in the River Eden after a multi-agency search operation.

Mohammad Abdul Hamid, known as Hamid, 16, of Barrock Street, Carlisle was identified by police.

Emergency services conducted a search of the river over the weekend when the North West Ambulance Service reported concern for his welfare after he entered the River Eden.

Hamid’s school, Richard Rose Central Academy paid tribute to the teenager.

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) have urged people to be careful around water.

A RoSPA spokesperson said: "Even on a hot day, the water can be a lot colder than you were expecting and lead to cold water shock, which is when sudden immersion makes you gasp and breathe in water, and this can easily lead to getting into difficulty.

"Always consider how you are going to get out of the water before you get in, and be realistic about your swimming ability.

"RoSPA’s advice is to go swimming at properly-supervised sites, such as beaches, lidos or swimming pools, although we appreciate that not everyone can get to these locations.”
