Firefighters talked to Year 7, 8, 9 and 10 pupils and showed them a presentation called ‘Remember Rony,’ which is being shown at schools across Cambridgeshire in an attempt to protect young people from drowning in open water.

The campaign started after Huntingdon teenager Rony John died whilst playing with friends in the River Ouse in 2014.
