'Suicide' Woman gets beach ASBO

Reports in the newspapers this week of a woman who, having repeatedly tried to drown herself, has been banned from visiting her local beach in Aberystwyth.

The ASBO, is intended not only to lessen the chances of future suicide attempts, but also to protect staff (including a policeman who swam out to rescue the woman, who had drifted 300 metres from the shore) of the emergency services, who have responded on three occasions to rescue her from the sea.

The woman, aged 42, has said :

I never wanted anyone to risk their life to save me and I never wanted anyone to see me attempt to take my own life.
