Danger & Eynsham Lock/weir 16 Jun 2021 Young people swimming in the river near to Eynsham Lock and climbing on to the weir.

Lots of young people are enjoying the weather & visiting Eynsham lock to take a dip, unfortunately TVP PCSO Helen Keen has seen a number of people jumping into the water and climbing out via the weir.

Yesterday 15/06/21 police and fire officers attended the area to offer advice on the dangers of the weir.

It has also been bought to our attention that alcohol is being consumed close to the river.

It goes without saying, cold water, hot weather and alcohol do not mix well!!!

Please ensure your children are aware of the dangers of rivers, weirs and fast running water.
