Witnesses reported seeing the teenager pulled out of Colne Water, a stretch of river between Colne and Trawden, which Pendle MP Andrew Stephenson recently highlighted as dangerous in a House of Commons debate.

The spot, just below Colne Cemetery, off Keighley Road, is popular with young people who swim in the river on hot days.

The North West Air Ambulance could not confirm any details at this time when contacted by the Colne Times.
