Among those at the quarry were two babies and officers took everyone's details and seized cannabis yesterday, Wyre Forest Police said.

Wyre Forest Police posted on Facebook saying: "The 'Blue Lagoon' in Stourport. Not so much an exotic Caribbean retreat, more a cold, rubbish filled quarry with two cars at the bottom and caustic 200 foot deep lime filled pools for good measure.

"Needless to say that swimming here is dangerous and unpredictable.

"40 people were removed this afternoon and details taken.

"It beggars belief that we encountered two families who had taken their babies over the rugged, filthy and dangerous terrain.

"Apparently, it is not clear that people are not allowed in... I would have thought that a heavily fenced entrance with barbed wire wrapped around the barrier would stand out as obvious.

"Cannabis seized and Covid breaches aplenty.

"It took a while but we got there and will be patrolling there regularly."
