A WOMAN was in a critical condition in hospital yesterday after apparently getting into difficulty while trying to swim in a lake.

The woman was rescued from the lake in Pearson Park, Hull, after being spotted by a member of the public walking a dog at about 7.30am.

A large area around the pond was taped off by police as a precaution in case it needed to be preserved as a potential crime scene.

It is not clear if she was alone or how long she had been in the water. Humberside Police declined to comment.
