EMERGENCY services were called in to search a river for a missing girl.

North Yorkshire Fire and Rescue  say they were called out at 6.46pm yesterday (October 13) to the River Ure in Boroughbridge after Ambulance crews responded to a boy believed to be intoxicated by the river.

A spokesman for the fire service said: "We were then requested as there was some suspicion that a female youth who had been present due to items found there, may have gone into the river.

"Two level two water rescue and two level three water rescue teams mobilised from Boroughbridge, Ripon, and Richmond. Shortly after Boroughbridge attended, contact was made with the missing female – safely back with her parents."
