River drowning: father bought rowing boat days earlier
Nick Britten, Martin Evans
Julian Mynott, an antiques dealer, was swept away by the rapids as he desperately fought to save his son Freddie and two other children, believed to be his older son Archie, 7, and daughter Florence, six.
Locals and police waded into the fast-flowing river and managed to pull the two older children to safety. The bodies of Mr Mynott and Freddie, who had only just turned three, were found later.
Yesterday, as the small village they lived in was plunged into grief, a resident said the tragedy happened the first time Mr Mynott had been in the rowing boat.
