I do feel strongly that the government should provide the resources so that the fire service can go into local schools to explain to young people the dangers of water – be it in the summer to cool down or in the icy winter to skate on.

A practical demonstration of the risks would help young people to understand the dangers and reduce the likelihood of the tragedy in Solihull that has meant three young people have lost their lives.
