WALKING down Huntington Road opposite the Grange (the old workhouse) yesterday, I came across life belts thrown into the River Foss.

With the hot weather, cool inviting river and fuelled by the recent opening of drinking establishments just released from the present lockdown, it must be a near perfect storm as regards people entering the cold river and drowning. The stupidity of people and their stupid behaviour can and will cost people their lives.
