This family is in the running for the most stupidest parents of 2018 after risking their children for a photo at renowned suicide spot Beachy Head.

In photos captured yesterday, a family lets a young child lie on the cliff edge as a man takes a snap at the East Sussex beauty spot.

The drop from the cliff edge is an eye-watering 531 feet and to allow young children so close to the drop is about as daft as it gets.

What makes Beachy Head even more dangerous is that chunks of cliff are known to collapse into the sea.

Police found a body at the bottom of the cliff yesterday, believed to be missing Londoner Hannah Northedge.

Ms Northedge, a jazz singer who had performed for the Queen and Tony Blair, had been staying in Eastbourne when she went missing.


On Thursday, police were called to a report of a body on the beach, but she was declared dead at the scene.

A Coastguard spokeswoman said: About 11.15am today East Sussex Fire and Rescue Service requested HM Coastguard assistance at Beachy Head after receiving reports that a car had gone over the cliff near the lighthouse.

The operation is ongoing.
