A note left by a disabled widow by Powell's Pool lake in Sutton Coldfield asking for someone to throw a rose into the lake in memory of her late husband has gone viral on the internet.

The Bishop Vesey's Grammar School rowing club tweeted a picture of the note and the rose that had been thrown in the lake on her behalf.

The widow said in the note that her husbands ashes were in the lake and because she was in a wheelchair she couldn't get to the lakeside.
