Dead body found washed up

The Argus: Dead body of woman found washed up Dead body of woman found washed up

The body of a woman was found washed up.

At around 1.30pm yesterday the woman was found washed ashore below the cliffs at the Undercliff between Brighton Marina and Saltdean - directly opposite Roedean School.

Sussex Police attended the scene and the woman's death is not being treated as suspicious.

One witness called what they saw a "horrendous experience".

The woman has yet to be formally identified.

I sometimes wonder whether the "journalists"who writes these Headlines really stop to think about what they have written before they press enter.

Did the the headline get changed since you wrote this, or are you referring to "Dead body found washed up"?

Sorry, but I have standards which place me well above journalists.

There are no journalists any longer though. Just minimum wage people who make freedom of information requests then publish them.

...and those who described what they saw as a 'horrendous experience' were presumably those who stood and watched goulishly attracting more onlookers (despite being asked to move on) as I waited with the body having spotted it in the water and called emergency services at 1.12pm. Alarmingly, the operator seemed to have little local knowledge and sent the police and lifeboats off to Ovingdean, despite having been given a precise location (200 yards east of the ramp to the undercliff opposite the golf course cafe at Roedean) . I guess the 'ghouls' will be able to watch it all again on some Channel 5 documentary as the Police had a film crew in tow and proceeded to conduct an interview with attending offcers and the unfortunate young lady 'washed up' on the beach in the background. Very sad...
