Holywell Lake deaths 'tragic accident', say police


The bodies of a 71-year-old woman and her six-year-old grandson have been found in a Lincolnshire lake.

Lincolnshire Police said the woman's body was found in Holywell Lake on Thursday night and the boy was found in the water on Friday morning.

Officers said a search had been carried out after the mother of the boy, who had stayed the previous night at his grandmother's, contacted police.

Detective Chief Inspector David Wood told the BBC "we may never fully establish how this accident happened".
