A 15-year-old boy was left seriously injured after falling from the top of the Argal Reservoir dam yesterday afternoon.

Police were called to the reservoir on the outskirts of Mabe across the Penryn by-pass at 3.35pm on Monday, June 10.

They were called after receiving reports of the teenager falling from a height into a dam at Argal Reservoir.
