Maidstone: Bodies of 'mother and son' found at Beachy Head

By KentOnline reporter

The bodies of a woman and her five-year-old son have been found at the foot of a cliff in Sussex.

It is thought the pair found at Beachy Head, in Eastbourne, are a 42-year-old woman and her son from Maidstone, although police are yet to confirm their identities.

Officers and the coastguard found the bodies at 7am on Monday while a spokesman for Sussex Police said the deaths are not being treated as suspicious.

Sussex Police launched an almost identical investigation last week after a further three bodies were found at the foot of the chalkface on Wednesday.
