Two British brothers, 7 and 9, drown while swimming in a lake while on holiday

Two British children have died swimming in West Germany.

The seven and nine-year-old brothers were reported missing by their parents at a designated bathing area on Lake Eiserbach.

Rescuers were able to get the boys out of the water after the alarm went off.

They were taken to hospitals in Aachen and Cologne, but died overnight.

The local police are now investigating the incident.

The lake where the incident happened on Thursday south of the city of Aachen is popular with tourists.

Germany experienced warm temperatures of around 31C this week, which had meant that the swimming area was even busier than usual.

MailOnline reports that the brothers were found in a deep area of ​​water and were non-swimmers.

“This could be a form of negligence,” a spokeswoman for the region’s attorney’s office told local media today.

This is breaking news, more to come.
