The body of a man has been found in a lake in Doncaster, the youngest person to have died from drowning during the heatwave.

A search by helicopter and emergency services continued throughout the afternoon.

The tragedy happened in Lakeside, a park area near the center of the city of Yorkshire.

Emergency services were called just after 4pm on a day when temperatures topped 30C.

A South Yorkshire Police spokesman said: “We are very sorry to report that following earlier information about an incident in Lakeside, Doncaster, a body has now been found.

“The emergency services were at the lake around 4:10pm today after receiving calls that a man in his 20s had gotten into trouble in the water.

“No formal identification has taken place yet.

“The man’s family has been informed and is being assisted by specialized officials.”

More than 20 people have died in the water during the extreme summer in Britain.

A teenager drowned in a lake in Hertfordshire earlier this week.

The 14-year-old got into trouble in the water at Cheshunt and a search was launched but a body was found hours later.

Another student, Brian Sasu, also 14, was among those who died in the water during the July heatwave.

The teenager was cooling off in the River Thames in Richmond, west London, when he got into trouble, his family said.
