Making Waves

A school from Wigan will soon be hitting the airwaves of Wire FM to help warn of the dangers of swimming in reservoirs.

Youngsters from Cansfield High School won a competition to come up with a hard hitting public safety radio advert.

Every spring and summer when the weather warms up, young people are risking their lives by swimming in reservoirs and other open water such as lakes and quarries. United Utilities are doing everything they can to get the message out there so youngsters don’t take the risk – and who better to tell that story than the young people themselves?
