Beachy Head in the news...

Beachy Head is in the news at the moment, with the tragic case of Neil and Kazumi Puttick, throwing themselves off with the dead body of their five-year-old son in a rucksack. Beachy Head has been described as a 'fatal attraction'. It is an area of outstanding natural beauty.
