After the Duchess of Cambridge gave birth to her third child, a new prince, this morning, West Mercia Police Operations & Communications Centre tweeted: "*** It's a BUOY! *** During this hot weather please take care when near water."

It comes as today sees the launch of Drowning Prevention and Water Safety Week, which is being supported by Shropshire Fire & Rescue Service.
