Three boys aged eight, 10 and 11 have died after falling through an icy lake in Solihull, police have confirmed.

A fourth boy, aged six, remains in a critical condition after the incident at Babbs Mill Park on Sunday afternoon.

A search is continuing after unconfirmed reports up to six children may have fallen in, but authorities warned it is "no longer a search and rescue operation".

The four children were all in cardiac arrest when rescue teams pulled them out. They were taken to hospital but police said three of them "could not be revived".

Reports from the scene and social media videos indicate they were playing on the ice and fell through, the fire service said.

Search teams were still using boats and wading in the lake on Monday - and police said they would continue until they are "100% certain" there are no other victims.

One of the first officers on the scene entered the lake in his uniform and tried to punch through the ice to help the boys, said the police
