Three people found dead at popular tourist spot

Three bodies have been found at the base of 150-metre cliffs in England.

The coastguard, police and lifesavers were part of an ongoing operation to recover the three bodies from the foot of cliffs at Beachy Head in East Sussex following the discovery on Wednesday about 3.30pm, The Sun reports.

It hasn’t been revealed whether the three people fell or if the deaths are suspicious. The identities of the people are also yet to be released.

There have been reports of rock falls from the cliffside in the 12 months, but it still remains a popular tourist attraction with more than 350,000 people visiting annually.

An estimated 20 people die by suicide at Beachy Head each year, the BBC reports.

It’s led people to The Beachy Head Chaplaincy Team conducting regular checks and evening patrols of the mountainside while workers at the pub also keep an eye out, The Times reports.
