Splashing start to summer

THOUSANDS of people flocked to a tourist attraction as warm weather spread across South Yorkshire.

Magna Science Adventure Centre’s outdoor water play park Aqua-Tek proved a hit with almost 2,000 visitors during the first days of the school summer break.

Crowds took the opportunity to cool off during the heat in the area - one of the largest of its kind in the UK - at Templeborough, Rotherham.
