The 12-year-old boy, who went into the River Trent yesterday (Monday 10 July, 2017), has been named as Owen Jenkins.

We were called to reports that a boy had gone into the River Trent off Riverside Road at around 6pm.

We worked alongside Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire Fire and Rescue and East Midland’s Ambulance Service’s Hazardous Area Response Team to launch a major search operation, but sadly at around 10pm a body was found in the water.

Specialist officers are with his family and our thoughts are with them.


101 is the number to call when you need to contact Nottinghamshire Police and it’s less urgent than a 999 call. Calls cost 15p, no matter how long the call lasts.
