Bath's large student population is being warned of the dangers of the city's river following the discovery of a teenager's body in the water this week.

Sam Amin's body was recovered on Tuesday and two thousand students arriving at Bath Spa University this weekend are being given advice on how to enjoy their nights out responsibly.

Chris Ellicott, who is the Registrar at the university says: ""There have been a number of deaths. It's about one a year on average but, of course, one a year is one too many every year, so we do want to remind students that they do need to be safe."

Project to show where floods could hit Bristol nears completion

A chalk line - heralded as the largest art work ever commissioned in the UK - has been drawn around Bristol's streets to raise awareness of what could happen if global warming goes unchecked.

The High Water Line project is designed to show which parts of the city are at risk of disappearing under water if sea levels rise.

Over the last fortnight, hundreds of residents have taken to the streets to create the 32-mile line.

One of the participants, Anna Wilson, says the inspiration for the artwork came from an artist called Eve Mosher. "She drew the line in New York in 2007 and the line was wiped out by Hurricane Sandy in 2012. She then felt that she wanted to spread the project to other flood-risk cities across the world, so they did Miami and now we're doing Bristol "
