Firefighters are pleading with children to stay out of lakes and rivers during the heatwave, after rescuing a 14-year-old who had injured her spine jumping into a weir.
The girl was pulled out of the water in Bury last night.
Station Manager Ian Tracey said: "With the scorching weather set to continue we ask parents out there 'where are your children on these hot days and nights?' and we continue to plead with people, of all ages, to stay out of open water no matter how tempting it may be."
