Mildenhall: Warning to free runners and youths jumping into river
YOUTHS have been seen jumping into the River Lark, from a footbridge, at Mildenhall, and leaping across roof tops in the town.
Police today issued a warning to those carrying out the stunts saying they could put their lives in danger.
The youngsters were reported to be plunging into the river from a footbridge at Jubilee Fields.
Many are also involved in “free running” where they are jumping across roofs at St Johns Community Centre, a local convenience shop and Great Heath Primary School.
PCSO Bill Butcher, of the Mildenhall Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: “We’ve had to speak to a number of people in the area about these dangerous games. We obviously want young people to have fun during the holidays but these activities are posing a serious danger to their own safety, and can endanger other people too.
