EMERGENCY service personnel attended an incident where a man jumped from Jubilee Bridge.

Last night 36 members of NWAS, Furness Coastguard & Barrow Lifeboat RNLI and the Police attended the scene where a male leapt from the bridge into the channel.

It is believed that the diver and another person with them were unharmed and were jumping from the bridge presumably for entertainment.

Whilst searching the shore and the channel, the emergency services discovered two other males swimming from Walney Promenade to Barrow Channelside.

They were found approximately 200 metres north of the bridge.

The divers all fled before they could be spoken to by the rescuers over their actions.

The other individuals exited the water by Channelside Haven adjacent to the boat club and also ran off.
