Tragic death on holiday

A 12-year-old boy from the Hull area has died at a campsite in France.

He is believed to have drowned after getting into difficulty while swimming in a lake at La Croix-du-Vieux Pont, a holiday camp in northern France.

Despite the efforts of lifeguards and emergency services, tragically the youngster was pronounced dead at a Paris hospital.

He had been on holiday with his family, at the camp owned by European Camping Group. In a statement, they said it was the first time a fatal accident had occurred at the site and expressed “deep sorrow” for the family.
