Weir accident: How the tragedy unfolded

A boy who was rescued from the River Avon after a boating accident in which his father and three-year-old brother died has been discharged from hospital.

The boy's sister, who was also rescued after the incident in Barford on Saturday, remains in hospital in Leicester in a serious condition.

The family's rowing boat capsized in strong waters at a weir.

The bodies of the man and his son, named locally as Julian Mynott and Freddie, were recovered hours later.
