  3. Four boys rescued from island in middle of Southampton pond

    Four boys have been rescued from an island in the middle of a pond in Southampton. 

    The group, aged between nine and 12, had been paddling in the pond next to Fairway Gardens in Rownhams yesterday at about 18:30 BST. 


    They had been using an inflatable dinghy, which sprung a puncture and started to sink. The boys then realised they were nearer the island than the edge of the 50ft pond. 

    Once they reached the island they contacted Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service who rescued them using an inflatable sled and throw lines.
