Lawrence Casey, 86, dove into Bude Canal in north Cornwall to rescue his stricken daughter Jessica after she fell into the water on Wednesday, September 1.

Emergency services confirmed following the incident that she had been pulled from the water by members of the public and taken to hospital by land ambulance, but that Mr Casey tragically died at the scene of his heroic rescue.

His family have now praised members of the public who went to help during the incident on Wednesday afternoon.

In a statement they said: “We are deeply shocked of course but I am so incredibly heartened by those who helped.
