Nursery says their thoughts are with the family

The nursery of a child who died after his family boat capsized this weekend say their thoughts are with the family.

Julian Mynott and his 3 year old son Freddie, who have been named locally, died in the accident at the weir in Barford on Saturday afternoon.

“The thoughts of our nursery staff and parents are very much with the family at this terrible time. We are all upset and thinking of them.

"As I am sure you realise this is a very upsetting day for everyone at Barford, and our manager has been supporting her staff and the nursery families throughout.

"I know that you will understand that this is her priority and will be sensitive to her time."
