According to Kent Police officers, they were called for the concerns of the wellbeing of one man, when they found the bodies of two men and a woman at the base of Langdon cliffs in Dover, Kent.
Kent police said that on Sunday afternoon, they were called for the concerns of the wellbeing of a man at Langdon Cliffs in Dover, Kent, when they found one body at the base of the cliffs.
The coastguard also reportedly discovered the second man and a woman. Police said they do not think the deaths of these two are connected to that of the first man they found.
A police spokesman said: “Kent Police was called at 2.27pm due to concern for the welfare of a man at Langdon Cliffs, Dover.
“Officers attended and the body of a man was subsequently discovered at the bottom of the cliffs by the coastguard. During the search the coastguard also discovered the bodies of a second man and a woman.”
“Officers do not believe their deaths are linked to that of the first man. Enquiries into the circumstances behind all three deaths are ongoing.”
A Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) spokeswoman said: “At 2.30pm today, Kent Police requested assistance from the UK Coastguard at an incident in the Dover docks area.”
“UK Coastguard sent Langdon Battery and Deal coastguard rescue teams, Dover RNLI lifeboat and the UK search and rescue helicopter based at Lydd.”
Police said the investigations behind the three deaths are still ongoing. There have been no updates so far as to the identification or the age of the three victims or the cause of their deaths.
One RNLI crewman said: “It is tragic case. The cliffs are notorious for people taking their own lives. The cliffs are so high that if they jump, sadly there is only outcome.”
