Police have named a man who died after getting into difficulty at Chasewater.
Carl Storer, from Tamworth, had gone into the water to help a nine-year-old girl who was having trouble in the reservoir on Sunday (30th June)
But the 21-year-old failed to emerge from the water himself and his body was recovered at around 6pm the same day.
In a tribute to Carl, his family said: “You were a really good brother and you will be deeply missed by family and friends.
“Rest in peace and fly with the eagles. You will always be loved.”
Sergeant Fay Mills, from the Lichfield Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “Carl’s family are receiving support from specially-trained officers and our thoughts are with them at this time.
“We are working with partners to establish the circumstances of his death and a report is being prepared for the Coroners.
“We have an increased officer presence at the park today to offer reassurance and we would encourage everyone to avoid swimming in open water for their own safety.”
