The retirement age mother had recently determined that she ought to see the site of her son's demise, and visited the scene only to fall to her own death yesterday evening. Witnesses claim that she was blown from the cliff by a sudden gust of wind that first swept a wig off her head, and - as she tried to catch the hairpiece - threw her off balance, sending her into the blustery waters and sparing her some embarrassment.

The third mother to die visiting the site, it is the eighth death in total since the original four man tragedy, and it may be just the incentive needed to install a railing on the cliff top. The only local councillor who had been advocating a railing installation fell from the clifftop himself in January.
