Play it safe around rivers and lochs

Scottish Water is reminding people to play it safe in or near rivers, reservoirs and lochs.

Following the recent tragic death of a 14-year-old boy at a reservoir near Edinburgh earlier this week, water chiefs are again advising people not to take risks around watercourses and calling on children in particular to take care near water during the summer holidays and any spells of warm weather we might enjoy.
