Police are now appealing for information following the "extremely dangerous and reckless act" in Hull.

Humberside Police Head of Special Ops Unit Supt Lee Edwards said: “With the recent tragic events where children have lost their lives in a frozen lake in Solihull I want to offer my sincere condolences to those parents who have lost their children in such tragic circumstances.

“I would also like to appeal to parents, guardians and children themselves, to please stay away from open water, especially frozen water. I share the advice of Humberside Fire and Rescue to stay away from frozen water.

"Bodies of water which freeze when the temperature hits zero and below may look like fun places to play, but can become dangerous for those who venture onto the ice.
