Drowning in the UK is amongst the leading causes of accidental death which is why HBR is supporting drowning prevention and water safety awareness week with the aim of making water safer by raising awareness of the dangers of being around water.

In 2015 321 people accidentally drowned - 49% of these people were taking part in everyday activities such as walking or running near water.

Expect the unexpected and be aware of the everyday risks of being near water.
