FIREFIGHTERS are currently down at the River Dee in Chester - but there is no reason for alarm.

Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service took to social media this morning (Sunday, June 6) to inform residents and visitors that they are carrying out training drills on the water.

A tweet read: "Red watch Chester & Powey Lane are training this morning on the river Dee practicing rescue techniques for swift water and boat operators are maintaining there use on the service boat."
