A 16-year old boy has died following an car crash near Patshull Park Hotel, Burnhill Green, South Staffordshire.

It happened in the early hours of this morning.

A silver Peugeot 306 left the road, went through a hedge and entered The Great Pool, which is a lake near the hotel.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival the crews found the driver of the car, an 18 year old man and a 15 year old female passenger had managed to get out of the vehicle.

“A third person - a 16-year-old - was reported missing. Members of the HART team joined SARA and other emergency services in a search of the lake.

“Tragically, the third person was found by police divers.”
