Body of man found at Beachy Head

THE body of a man found at the foot of Beachy Head cliffs has been identified as Graham Piggott, 32, from Udimore,

His body was discovered with that of another man and a car but the deaths are not being linked.

The two were discovered on May 17 by the police helicopter on routine patrol.

The other man is Christopher Stallard, 51, from Northumberland Avenue, New Barnet in Hertfordshire.

A Volvo was also found at the foot of cliffs and there was evidence that the car had been driven over the grass verge and through a gate before plunging over the notorious suicide spot.

The two bodies, one which was part way down the cliff, were around 500 metres west of the lighthouse.

A police spokesperson has confirmed there is no link between the two deaths.

The police are not treating the matter as suspicious and the coroner’s officer is continuing her enquiries.
