As the catalogue of accidents, tragedies and near misses continues to grow it may be apposite to consider what can be done to stay safe on our district's eponymous river.
And just last week three members of the same family were lost in a canoeing tragedy as they tried to paddle the rain swollen river from Hexham to Wylam.

In 1771 a major flood washed away almost every bridge in the Tyne Valley, with just the river crossing at Corbridge left standing.
During summer months, many have been tempted to step into the river's cool embrace only to find themselves at the mercy of sudden and furious currents.
Two years ago, canoeist Andrew Weatherill was drowned at the weir at Riding Mill after losing control of his canoe in high waters.
But the South Tyne is an unpredictable torrent. Rising on Alston Moor to run down through Haltwhistle and Haydon Bridge, the water levels Under Armour Shoes Blue And Orange of this tributary are greatly affected by rainfall.
Rising on the Scottish Border and running through Kielder Forest and Bellingham before flowing into Hexham, the flow of the North Tyne is mostly regulated by Kielder Reservoir.

"It's important to know what happened in Alston and Otterburn the night before. If there's a huge rise of water in Alston I know that at some point that's going to hit me down near Hexham.
This unpredictability with regard to water levels is something those enjoying water sports on the river must be ever mindful of.
Paul Atkinson of the Tyne Rivers Trust said: "The Tyne is what's known as a spate river, as its bedrock isn't very permeable.
