Dangers of jumping
8:00am Thursday 9th August 2012 in Letters
Sir – A few weeks ago a lad drowned following a jump from Donnington Bridge into the River Thames .
Recently there was caution in jumping from Godstow bridge. Naturally, reports of caution and awareness of danger are a great public service. Today (August 2) I read The Oxford Times, and, on page 13, there is a photograph of a lad and friends, taking advantage of warm weather by jumping from Godstow bridge. How irresponsible can the paper be, promoting risk to the loss of life?
