West Cumbrian boy in river plunge

A seven-year-old boy was rescued from the River Derwent near Great Clifton on Saturday.

Police and ambulance crews were called to the scene at 9.05pm to help the boy and a 19-year-old woman who went into the river to help him.

The boy and woman, both from the Great Clifton area, were taken to the West Cumberland Hospital, Whitehaven. They were released without injuries the same day.

A police spokeswoman said they believed the boy fell in when he was trying to cross the river on stepping stones.
