A verdict of accidental death has been recorded following the inquest into the death of a man who jumped into the River Lune from Devil’s Bridge.

The body of 22-year-old Darrell Teal of Booth Drive, Manchester, was found a short distance from the bridge in Kirkby Lonsdale after several hours of searching by emergency services.

The alarm was raised just after 5pm over concerns for a man who had entered the river at the tourist hot spot that proves popular with thrillseekers jumping into the water.
