As the hot weather continues Lincolnshire Police are urging people not to swim in open water.

Ponds, lakes, canals and rivers are dangerous, with the water temperature remaining cold even in hot weather.

It can be hard to assess the strength of current or the depth of the water, and hidden obstacles lying under the water can cause injuries.
