  • I am the girl who ends up in the river. I was in too much of a state to myself out and screaming for help. I'd very much like to say a massive thank you to all the local Bridge-Streeters who pulled me out of the river and looked after me until help arrived. I am very shaken and have a suspected fractured collar bone. Thank you again, Jenny xxx
