Water park death - fresh appeal for information

Water park death - fresh appeal for information

Crime number: 440 of 23 July

Detectives investigating the death of five-year-old boy at Bosworth Water Park, Leicestershire, are making a fresh appeal for information.

Charlie Robert Dunn died following an incident at the water park, in Market Bosworth, on Saturday 23 July.

Officers are now appealing for anyone with moving footage or photos on their phone from the park on the day of his death to get in touch. More »

Enquiries carried out since his death show more than 500 vehicles passed through the barriers at the entrance on the day of Charlie's death. He was there with his family between 11.55am and 3.20pm.

So far, only a very small number of people who were at the water park have come forward. If you were there and have any information please get in touch.

At the time of the incident Charlie was wearing blue and yellow shorts with Minions printed on them and, a grey t-shirt with a picture of Woody from Toy Story on the front. He was also wearing glasses.

Detective Sergeant Nikki McLatchie, who is working on the investigation, said: "We are keen to speak to anyone who saw Charlie at the park. Did you see him in the water? Did you see him playing? You may only have a small recollection but it could really help with our investigation.

"We know Charlie was carried out of the water by other park users. Did you see him in the water prior to this?

"If you took any footage from the area around the Blue Lagoon that afternoon please get in touch with us. It could really help us piece together what happened."

Anyone with information is asked to call 101 and quote incident 440 of 23 July.

Two people, a man and woman, who were arrested in connection with the incident remain on police bail. » Less
