The tragic incident comes days after a man’s body was found at Victory Quarry in Dove Holes. Emergency services were called to the quarry at just after 7pm on Sunday following a 999-call reporting one male missing in the water. It was reported that the man had been seen in difficulty before the call to emergency services was made. Sadly his body was recovered at around 11pm that evening.
