Appeal for video footage in connection with Chasewater death

Police are asking anyone who has footage of a drowning at Chasewater Reservoir to contact them - but not to share it publicly.

Staffordshire Police is appealing for anyone who may have recorded video footage of the tragic events at the Burntwood park on Sunday (30th June) to come forward. 

Carl Storer, aged 21, had got into difficulty while in the water at around 6pm on 30 June - it's believed he was trying to save a 9 year old girl.

His body was recovered from the water by emergency services a short time later. 

Detectives are currently trying to establish the circumstances that led to Carl’s death, and believe that members of the public may have recorded the incident as it unfolded, on their smartphones. 

Detective Inspector John Quilty, senior investigating officer for Staffordshire Police, said: “It is important that we get answers for Carl’s family and video recordings of the incident would be a huge help. I would ask that anyone who did capture footage of the incident refrains from sharing it on social media and instead contacts us for our detectives to view.” 

If you do have footage of the incident, you can contact the officer in the case reiss.joyce@staffordshire.pnn.police.uk quoting incident number 654 of 30 June to arrange the sharing of the file(s).
