A man and a dog were reported as being in the River Rothay in Ambleside. The dog managed to get back out of the water, but the man was swept away. A search was organised, involving Police, Ambulance, Fire Service, Lake Wardens and Coastguard. Sadly, he was located, deceased, in the water some time later. Early suggestions that he was trying to rescue the dog can't be corroborated.
A canoeist was reported by a passer-by as in difficulty. He passed under a bridge in Ambleside shouting for help. The team was called and the canoeist was accounted for, having managed to get himself out of the water. Nice canoeing weather, but not so good otherwise.
