Leap of danger for Eastney lads

Waiting for Video...

THEY’RE risking life and limb by tombstoning into rock-filled waters, and close to a sewage outfall at that.

These teenagers were seen hurling themselves off Eastney Pier yesterday, despite repeated calls for the dangerous activity to be stopped.

Cllr Neill Young, Portsmouth City Council’s cabinet member for children and education, said he was ‘very concerned’ that tombstoning was continuing.

He said: ‘I’m even more concerned that young people are doing this very close to a sewage outlet. This is a tremendously dangerous act to be doing. I don’t think the young people realise the dangers they’re putting themselves in and I’d renew calls for them to stop risking life and limb.’
