Body found during quarry search
Blue Lagoon
Several people have died at the Blue Lagoon in recent years
A body has been found during a search for a teenager at a flooded quarry.

Divers were called on Sunday evening to the Blue Lagoon beauty spot in Arlesey and the body was found just after midnight, Bedfordshire Police said.

During the search thieves broke into an emergency vehicle and stole a radio, mobile phone, digital camera and pain relief nitrous oxide (laughing gas).

A police spokeswoman said: "Had that equipment been needed, it would have been a major problem."

An 18-year-old man died at the lagoon in June 2005 after he jumped into the water from a boat.

And in July 2001, three children drowned when they were trapped in the back of a car which plunged into the water.
