THE police went to the shore of Windermere after a boat was reported capsized.

South Lakes Police reported on their Facebook page yesterday (March 23) that they received a call regarding people 'possibly' in distress having upturned their boat on the lake. 

A spokesperson for the force said: "Fortunately when we arrived the Lake Wardens were already on scene and nothing nefarious was noted.

"Boat corrected and returned to shore with all occupants uninjured. 

"If you think someone on/in the water needs assistance 999 is always the way to go! Absolutely the correct decision by today's caller - Thank you for your vigilance."
