Thrillseekers risk serious injury as they hurtle down a reservoir outlet in inflatable dinghies

Thrillseekers who turned a reservoir waterway into a makeshift waterslide have been slammed by social media users and the video has even been flagged as dangerous. 

The adrenaline junkies filmed each other hurtling down the steep chute in inflatable dinghies at Nicky Nook Reservoir near Preston, Lancashire.

They start by simply climbing up the wall next to the waterway but then progress to using mats, and then inflatables to go faster down the 328-foot decline.

Jake Mellor posted a series of videos of the adrenaline junkies going down the dangerous water slide on TikTok. 

The foolhardy youths plummet down the manmade waterfall into rocky shallow waters at the bottom while others look on.

The clips have racked up thousands of views and likes. But one of them has now been flagged by TikTok  with a warning saying 'the action in this video could result in serious injury'.

Viewer Chris Moir warned: 'Been down it a couple of times. Dangerous at the bottom with the rocks.'

One local said: 'Broke my ankle going down one of these.'

Another said: 'Why would anyone risk their manly hood like this I'll never know.'

Jake Daly added: 'Who needs to pay for a ticket into a water park when this exists.'

Abby Hubbard simply said: 'No way.'
