I do not think the newspaper clip is being incentive, it’s stating “ treat the rivers with respect” and how dangerous they can be. With this I do feel sorry for the young ladies family and what they are going through, mentally reliving the moment.

Last week I was in Wales when a group of lads came down the river Dee in an inflatable unicorn purchased from Aldi and got into serious trouble.
