Visitors are continuing to ignore clear instructions from the authorities to keep away from a dangerous quarry.

West Mercia Police has warned of the dangers of visiting Gullet Quarry, near Ledbury on the Worcestershire border, as they face a risk of drowning due to cold water shock, should they jump in the water.

Police also said anyone who meets in a group at the quarry risks spreading coronavirus, and they have had to move "several groups of people".

West Mercia Police officers in Malvern said: "Several groups of people were removed from Gullet Quarry [May 28], including some with a BBQ and a child in the water.

"Not only is it dangerous, but it's a breach of [Malvern Hills Trust] bylaws."

Police moved 51 people away from the quarry in one afternoon on Sunday, May 24 after warnings ahead of the bank holiday weekend to stay away.

Visitors were warned of a 'triple death risk' at the notorious quarry which has already claimed young lives, including Justas Juzenas, aged 22, of Ross-on-Wye.

The risk of cold water shock and drowning, hidden currents and unseen objects such as broken glass have been well-publicised by the Malvern Hills Trust, West Mercia Police, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) and the Royal Life Saving Society UK.
