Couple rescued from boat at Diglis Weir

The call was received just after 8.05am, and with fire crews from Worcester, a Water First Responder team from Malvern and rescue boats from both Evesham and Worcester in attendance, a couple and their dog were brought from the boat to safety by 8.35am.

SARA (Severn Area Rescue Association) is expected to assist with the recovery of the boat later this morning.

With river levels in Worcester set to rise further today, HWFRS is urging all river users to be cautious.
