“Another Cliff Plunge: What Should Be Done ? “

Recently the Whitby Gazette ran an article under the heading of “Another Cliff Plunge: What Should Be Done ?”. Now Real Whitby asks the question to local people. What can be done to help reduce suicide at the cliffs in Whitby.

It seems that The cliff tops near Whitby Abbey are becoming a popular place for people to take their own lives.

This is clearly very sad for all involved, and even those of us not directly effected feel the pain.

Recently the Whitby Gazette ran an article under the heading of “Another Cliff Plunge: What Should Be Done ?” where in concerns of the local police were documented as follows :

Police have admitted they are concerned about how to stop people jumping or falling off cliffs at the Abbey Plain, after what is believed to have been the second suicide in a fortnight.

This got me thinking about what actually can be done ? Perhaps we could erect high fences ? or place numbers for the Samaritans up there, but would that be enough ?

Please join our Facebook debate (below) on this issue and let us know what you think.

    Its so sad to hear of some one who takes their own life for what ever reason, but if people are intent on ending their live then nothing will ever stop them.

    What should be done? Maybe SBC Councillors should be offered double mileage money for making this little journey. Two birds with one stone?
