New throw lines and safety signs have been installed at Foulridge reservoir in memory of James Goodship, the 17 yr old from Colne who died after getting into difficulty at the reservoir in June 2014.

James was a strong swimmer but people don’t realise the hidden dangers of reservoirs.

It is hoped the information will help deter people, especially youngsters, from swimming in the deep water and, if the worst should happen, throw lines could stop another tragedy.
