Hounslow Council confirmed on Tuesday night it had closed the country park while it helped with the search.

It comes the day after a 14-year-old boy was found dead in a north London lake as Londoners sought to cool down during a second heatwave.

Police rushed to North Met Lake, off Cadmore Lane, Cheshunt after reports that a teenager had got into difficulty in the water just before 5pm on Monday.
