FIREFIGHTERS were on hand to give residents advice when it comes to water safety at the weekend.

Crew members from Manningtree station were out and about in the town offering the key tips.

A spokesman for the station said: "Manningtree Fire Station sits right next to the River Stour, so the firefighters know all too well the importance of water safety.

"This week they have been out to talk to their community about our Be Water Aware campaign and also told people about the what3words app."
