Woman Died After She Fell From Cliff While Looking For Toilet
A woman died after accidentally plunging off a cliff edge while looking for a toilet.
An inquest into the death of Faye Reed, 22, heard that she had been in a car with her pals on the 25 March when they stopped at Beachy Head in East Sussex so she could nip out and look for a toilet.
Charmane Dixon, Nicole Davies and Reed were in a car being driven by Rayan Kalhei when they asked him to stop so she could 'spend a penny', the Eastborne Herald reports.
However, as it was night time Reed didn't see the cliff's edge and stumbled over it.
Her friends said they heard a scream and realised she had fall from the cliff top. They called police who arrived to find the devastated friends 'screaming Miss Reed's name, looking for her'.
Coastguard helicopters were sent out and her body was later found.
Dixon said the women had drank 'small amounts of vodka and gin'. A toxicology report found she had a small amount of alcohol in her system, meaning she would be 'merry' rather than drunk.
Dixon said: "The three of us got out of the car and started walking to find somewhere to go. It was really dark.
"Faye was in front of me and I heard her scream and then she was gone."
Kalhei remained in the car and said one of the women ran back to tell him about the accident.
Detective Sergeant Chris Milner said there was only a small patch of grass separating the road and the cliff's edge in the area the women had been looking for a toilet.
He said it was a 'tragic accident' and there was no suspicious circumstances.
Her heartbroken dad Trevor said: "It was a privilege and an honour to be her father.
"She was beautiful, my pride and joy. She had many friends, but always came to see me.
"She had visited me the night before she went out with her friends."
