Water safety included in pupils' school qualification

Schoolmates of an 11-year-old boy who died after falling into a river have been learning about water safety.

Children from Queen Elizabeth High School in Carmarthen were at a quarry in Wenvoe, Vale of Glamorgan, on Wednesday.

They were there as part of the new Welsh Baccalaureate water challenge, which aims to teach children about the dangers of open water and will be rolled out across Wales from September.
