Probably thought it wasn't too deep as the water only went half way up the ducks.

Footpath is the correct word here. Not bridleway.

Anyone thought that maybe, just maybe, it was a set-up, staged by the photographer? It does happen, you know.

Seems a rather far fetched idea. How would the photographer manage to flood the river and cause it to burst its banks just where the children were cycling?

See the Fire Chiefs warning re children playing in floodwater. This is totally irresponsible and the BFP are even more irresponsible for printing this photograph!

Sometimes msking people aware of the danger makes thongs safr. Keeping it hidden away means people may not even be aware of risks.
