Last night Emergency Services attended an incident at High Eske Nature Reserve, Tickton, despite the very best efforts of the Emergency services on the scene, tragically the incident resulted in two young people losing their lives.

Our thoughts and deepest sympathies are with the families and friends at this difficult time.

Crews from Humberside Fire and Rescue Service, Humberside Police, and Yorkshire Ambulance Services were in attendance and worked together. A further four members of the public were rescued from the reserve by Humberside Fire and Rescue Service using a boat and Humberside Police deployed diving teams.

The Service is working closely with Humberside Police, and the area is currently closed to the public as we continue to investigate this very tragic incident.

The Service would like to stress the importance of remaining safe around open water and the clear advice from the Emergency Services is that people should not enter the water.

Open water such as ponds, rivers and lakes etc. are highly dangerous and people should not enter them, unless they are an experienced open water swimmer.
