There’s been quite a bit of nasty weather here in England lately (nastier than usual, that is).
One man was swept out to sea from Brighton pier. Now, it’s looking like he might have been engaged in the practice of "wave watching".
That would be one explanation for why he was last seen clinging to the *underside* of the pier. Here’s another by Inspector Andy Kille, of Sussex Police:
"He should not have been there. It is not an area open to the public. We are keeping an open mind, including the possibility that he intended to commit suicide, since that is pretty much what he did."
