    BBC Local Live

    It has turned out to be another warm day - and one organisation has used the sunny weather to warn people not to cool down by jumping in rivers or canals.

    Liz Fleuty, from the East Midlands branch of the Canal and River Trust, said teenagers are most likely to participate in this controversial cooling technique.

    "The water is really murky and you can't actually see at the bottom," she said. "Another thing to bear in mind is we do sometimes gets rats in urban areas.

    "This could mean there is a disease in the water, so if you do go in the water you could be at risk of that disease so it isn't pleasant."

  13. Campaign launched for Armed Forces Day event in Nottingham

    Maryam Qaiser

    BBC Local Live

    A Nottingham man has started a campaign to get an Armed Forces Day event held in the city this weekend.

    Eight years ago, a large regional event was held at the Victoria Embankment and since then, a smaller, annual event has been held in Wollaton Hall.

    But Andy Shaw feels there should be a city event to pay tribute to army veterans.

    He said: "A soldier shouldn't have a figure put on his life, a soldier when he signs up, signs a blank cheque and says I am willing to die for you."

    Nottingham City Council has previously funded and organised the event - which marks the contribution and sacrifices made by Britain's armed forces.

    But this year the authority did not commit to organising an event. Instead, they invited local groups to come forward and organise an event in exchange for a free venue and funding.

    Armed Forces Day

    Larger regional events will take place in Newark and Derby and the city council said it hoped to be the host city again in the future.

    Smaller events are also taking places in Mansfield and West Bridgford.

    The owner of the Nags Head Inn in Glenfield, Benjamin Goodman, said he was serving customers on Sunday afternoon when he heard a "massive crash" outside.

    "The accident was a shock to me, moments earlier the car park was full of kids, the beer garden had lots of families and children in it," he said.

    "Luckily there were no casualties or damage to my main building this could have been a horrific accident. The damage to my car park is bad, a full assessment will have to happen next week."
