Two people died after falling from Beachy Head on Saturday (13 May).

The first was a woman who had been spotted at the edge of cliffs at 11am. She is reported to have fallen a few minutes later. She has been identified and her next of kin have been informed.

While her death was being dealt with, a man was seen to approach the cliff edge a short distant away and fall a few minutes before 12 noon. He had not been identified on Saturday evening.

Coastguards and Eastbourne RNLI were both called to help recover the bodies.

The two deaths are not believed to be connected and neither is being treated as suspicious. Both have been referred to the coroner's officer.
