Woman’s body found at Beachy Head

A WOMAN jumped from cliffs at Beachy Head last night, despite attempts by police to dissuade her.

In freezing conditions last night, police tried to negotiate with the distressed person shortly before she was seen to jump.

Both Eastbourne lifeboats went to the scene. Two crewmen from the inshore lifeboat were put ashore, along with a doctor and crewman from the all-weather lifeboat.

The scene was illuminated by the all-weather lifeboat whilst the casualty was located and made ready for recovery. She was then taken to the Lifeboatdstation and passed into the care of the Police coroner
