The body of a 20-year-old has been recovered from the River Severn in Shropshire. Police divers were called to the scene, after reports of a man who got in difficulties yesterday afternoon.
It is the second water-related death since the hot spell began. Safety campaigners are urging people to think again before cooling off in lakes, quarries and rivers.
