Boy in boat tragedy out of hospital

One of the two children rescued after a boat overturned on the River Avon killing their father and brother has been released from hospital.

The seven-year-old boy is now with his mother who wasn't in the boat that capsized at Barford, near Warwick.

The boy's sister, aged six, is still in hospital in a serious but stable condition but is out of immediate danger.

The children's mother has asked for privacy in order for the family to come to terms with what has happened.

Warwickshire Police say that due to the processes of formal identification, they are not yet able to release the names of the two people who died, although they are aware that their names have been widely circulated.

The two who died were father and son, aged 42-years and three years respectively.
