Lake Windermere deaths

The partner of a woman who died with her daughter on Lake Windermere will appear at court charged with manslaughter. Kelly Webster, 36, and Lauren Thornton, 10, from Lancashire, fell ill whilst on board the privately owned boat in the Lake District last April.

Tests found they were killed by generator fumes. Ms Webster's partner Matthew Eteson, 40, also from Lancashire, has been charged with manslaughter by gross negligence.

Cumbria Police are searching for a man who is believed to have fallen into the River Rothay at Ambleside which flows towards Lake Windermere. Officers are being supported by the Officers from the Fire service, Coastguard, RAF, Langdale Mountain Rescue team and Lake Wardens from Lake Windermere.

Police are urging people not to enter the local rivers or lakes as the water is very fast moving and dangerous.
