THE mum of a young boy who drowned after Hartlepool’s lifeguards were withdrawn says she is “gobsmacked” at council proposals to axe the service again due to budget cuts.

June Hall, whose eight-year-old son Jordan Moon drowned eleven years ago last Saturday, blasted the idea, which Hartlepool Borough Council is considering to save £100,000 a year.

The lifeguards service, which runs from May to the end of September, and school crossing patrol services are among a series of potential budget cuts being considered by the council.
