CALLS are being made for an abandoned quarry in West Lancashire to be filled in following the tragic death of a teenage boy at the weekend.
Jamie Lewin, aged 16, from Southport died following an incident at a quarry at Dawber Delph (east quarry), in Appley Bridge on Saturday.
Police were called at round 9.40pm on Saturday, July 9 to a report a boy had entered the water and got into difficulty at the delph.
Emergency services attended the scene and following a search the body was recovered from the water.
He was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.
The boy’s family have paid a heart-breaking tribute to the ‘one-in-a-million’ teenager.
His mother Steph Lewin said: “Jamie was a promising boxer who loved life and had so much to look forward to.
“He was so loved by everyone. He touched so many peoples’ lives.
“He really was one in a million. I’m so happy I was his mum.”
