    To those thinking of jumping from here, bear in mind it’s only a fifty foot drop, you WILL survive for a while in excruciating pain, the emergency services WILL try to resuscitate the hell out of you before your broken body finally gives up. Don’t wait on the cliff edge to involve some innocent passer by to witness your last act and spare a thought to the person who will come across your body and have to call the police.

    Poor lady and her family.
    I doubt the pain after falling is as painful as the pain they feel in order to jump.Thoughts to the lady’s family xx
