Here is a very sad story that was recently featured in the media, highlighting how deeply health and safety regulations are impacting the ability of the rescue services to perform their roles.
Simon Burgess fell into Gosport Boating Lake and drowned, his corpse (note, no one is yet sure as to when he died in the water as he suffered from blackouts) then floated on the water whilst the crews of two fire engines, two police cars, two ambulances and an air ambulance looked on.
They were told not to enter the 3 foot deep water, in case they "compromised their safety".
A specialist water rescue crew arrived 26 minutes later, and removed Mr Burgess's corpse from the lake.
