A BODY has been found after a teenage girl got into difficulty as she swam in Greater Manchester yesterday.
Specialist search teams dashed to a quiet residential street in Stalybridge on Monday shortly after 6.30pm.
Tragically, the youngster was found dead in the water off Crowswood Drive last night. The street lies close to both the River Tame and two fishing lakes.
Formal identification has taken place and her family are being supported by specially-trained officers.
She is believed to be the fourth person to drown during this week's roasting heatwave.
Enquiries into her death are ongoing, but detectives from Tameside CID are "confident" that there aren’t any suspicious circumstances.
