A Lancashire Police spokesperson said: "We were called around 5.05pm on Saturday (June 27) to a report a boy had been found unresponsive in water in Ireby.

 

"A Home Office post mortem to establish a cause of death will take place in due course.

"The death is not being treated as suspicious and a file will be passed to HM Coroner.

"Our thoughts are with the boy’s family at this sad and difficult time."

A HSE spokesperson said: "Every year, children, often family members, are killed on farms. Farms are not playgrounds.

 

"Working areas of the farm are hazardous and like any other workplace, children must be kept away and kept safe."

 

HSE has reminded farmers that information on child safety on farm can be found on its website, including free guidance on preventing accidents to children on farms.
