'Ten More Dangers' at Beach which Claimed Schoolgirl
6:03am 2nd December 2011
There is a new warning over the deadly mines at a Cornish beach where a schoolgirl lost her life.
A leaked report says there are ten more danger areas at Perranporth.
It fears youngsters are already exploring the network of adits and could be crushed or trapped by the tide.
Eleven year-old holidaymaker Eleanor Clarke died after plunging down one shaft last year.
Perranzabuloe Parish Council commissioned the report in the wake of the tragedy. Its findings were leaked to The West Briton newspaper.
Among the recommendations are to add warning signs and fit metal grilles to stop people getting into the maze of tunnels. Debris such as bottles and glowsticks could be evidence that youngsters are already risking their lives investigating the mine workings.
David lives nearby. He said, "We have cliffs, we have mineshafts, we have the outgoing sea. It's all dangerous and children need to learn. Education is the way forward. I never fell down a mineshaft, I was told to keep clear of them and so I did. You learn to respect the environment that you live in."6:03am 2nd December 2011
