North Yorkshire Fire service are warning people about the dangers of rising river levels after a woman and two children became stranded by fast flowing waters. They were rescued by RAF helicopter after clinging onto a tree in the River Ure near Ripon just after 2 o'clock this afternoon.
This could have been a different story and should act as a warning to the dangers of rising river levels. Rivers may look benign, but it can quite quickly change. In this instance the preceding rainfall from the night before caused a rapid rise in the river level in a very short period of time.
