Accident in Cumbria

I don't know any more on this than what's on this page:

Hopefully it all works out for the best (apologies if the situation has changed since this link was posted, I haven't heard any more about it)

Really bad, I also hope she recovers quickly.

Not quite so serious but someone also broke their foot on the Mellte on New Year's Day.

Evening,

Whilst I appreciate that people have an interest and concern, could I just ask at the moment that you bear with us.

Thank you


Ian

It's been a tragic few days for kayaking by the sound of it and has taken my back to April 2010 when we had an equally hard week for the sport. My thoughts are with everyone who has lost a paddling friend this past week and good luck in coming to terms with it all. It will hurt a lot now but it will get better I promise.

Keep smiling at the memories you have, and if you can, keep paddling, cause that's how we keep them alive x

Our thoughts are with her family and friends.

She was a good friend and will be missed by many. I would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to all the emergency services that where involved. They do a phenomenal job day after day and should not go unrecognised.

Morning,

I have been asked to clarify that the press reports of the incident being on Hobdale Beck are incorrect, this incident took place on the Rawthey, a minor point I know but for the sake of clarity and accuracy.

Can I thank everyone for their kind words and thoughts.

A daughter, a wife, a mother and a friend, a kind and gentle person.

I'll miss you Kate.

Dear all at YCC, I'm so sorry for your loss. I am think of you all, and send all my love.. especially to Paul and everyone who was paddling that day.

Kate was a lovely, bubbly person who was one of the people who helped to start me out in paddling. In fact it was on a lakes trip that I really got to know her. She was enthusiastic and fun-loving and achieved some inspirational things. I am deeply shocked and saddened by this news. I am sorry I cannot be there on Jan 18th, but I will be thinking of Kate and you all on that day, sending my love from the other side of the world.

Rest in Peace, Kate.
