A teenage boy has died after falling into the River Thames in Oxford.

Emergency services were called to the scene at Donnington Bridge at 7.10pm on Thursday after the boy got into trouble.

He was rushed to the city's John Radcliffe Hospital but died shortly after arriving, a Thames Valley Police spokeswoman confirmed.

In May 2012, a 15-year-old boy died after jumping off the same bridge.
