Body Recovered By Search Teams At The River Trent Near Swarkstone

The body believed to be that of a 15-year-old boy has been recovered from a stretch of the River Trent near Swarkstone.

Officers were called to the area at about 5.30pm yesterday (Tuesday 20 July) following reports of a person in difficulty in the water.

Specialist teams from Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire police and Derbyshire Fire & Rescue Service carried out extensive search and rescue efforts, but sadly the boy's body was recovered from the water just after 11.30am.

The boy's family have been made aware and specially trained officers are liaising with them, but formal identification has not yet taken place.

Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this distressing time.
