Cumbria Police can confirm that the man who died this afternoon is believed to be a 48 year old man from the Hest Bank area of Lancaster.

Investigations have confirmed that both the man and his dog were seen in the river at approximately 2.25pm, unfortunately the man was swept away by the fast moving water at the River Rothay, Ambleside. His body was found at 3.30pm following a multi-agency search. The dog managed to get out of the water.

Officers are not treating this as suspicious, but as a tragic accident.

Formal identification is still to take place, however Officers are supporting his family at this very difficult time.

Police are urging people to stay away from the water’s edge and not to enter the local rivers or lakes as the water is fast moving and can be very dangerous.
