    The latest from the local police.

    CCTV cameras on board, and that ship for some reason has more than most, show that she climbed up onto the ships rail and jumped into the sea.
    Why, only she may know that.
    Happy daze John in Oz.

    P&O staff and police have reviewed the CCTV aboard the ship, which they say showed Brisbane woman Natasha Schofield, 47, talking to her husband on the top deck on Thursday afternoon before she took two steps back and deliberately propelled herself from the left side of the vessel into the water.

    The liner was at sea about 300 kilometres off New Caledonia at the time.

    Brisbane region duty officer Inspector Rob Graham said the woman's husband tried to grab her by the legs as she went over the railing, but it was too late.

    "The missing person did not accidentally fall ... [and] did not fall as a result of a freak wave," he said.

    "I can say that the missing person did make intentional actions to propel herself overboard. I can say that a male person, her husband, was standing right next to her when she went over.

    "I can also say that her husband tried in vain to grab her as she went over, by grabbing onto her legs, but she was too far gone. These are a tragic set of circumstances on what should have been a week-long holiday of a lifetime."

    I got that to a total blank red page with nothing on it . I thought it was Jeremy corbyn's Labour Party manifesto

    For the sake of political correctness and fairness there are other parties who have an awful lot of nothing to say I don't know for lot of nothing to do and this was intended as a joke not as a political statement

    I was on watch in ER when a fella jumped over the after end we got him back on board he was a steward who had gotten a dear John a few days earlier. Well the CE got hold of him a bit later and gave him a real blocking as he had stuffed up the fuel consumption.
    On a recent cruise round Tasmania at safety drill the young lady said if you see someone falling over the side call out Person Over Board, but no mention casting life belt or that.

    That sounds about par for the course George, everyone shouting person overboard to Be politically correct, then standing back duty done. Then all standing back and putting their views and what should have happened at the. Enquiry, when the body was recovered later by someone totally away from the vessel and occurrence. Safety has been observed however apart from the minor deficiency of not dropping a likebuoy or smoke float. Will have to do a course on how to do that after learning to shout person overboard.

    With all due respect john there are a few I would like to throw overboard, starting will all of the PC brigade who develop this crap.

    The maybe the polis, though they are so full of it now they may pollute the water to a point where it cannot be repaired.

    Call out 'person' overboard and the crew would look at you and ask, what??

    This was the subject of family discussion recently, about the disposal of my mothers ashes; I suggested scattering in sea at low tide line at Tynemouth,However, according to my brother who is assistant registrar at Durham crematorium, we need to have council permission, ffs! How would they know?
