Patrols have been stepped up at a popular beauty spot where people are ignoring safety warnings and jumping from a bridge into the water.

South Lakeland District Council’s Enforcement Team have stepped up patrols at Devils Bridge in Kirkby Lonsdale, where there is a bylaw that prohibits anyone from jumping off the bridge.

Last Thursday, an SLDC Enforcement Officer, witnessed a man jumping from the bridge at about 2pm and reported the matter to the police. Police spoke to the 24-year-old man from Lancaster who was reported for contravening a bylaw.
