Council set to re-evaluate river safety
‘We will identify any areas where safety may need to be changed’
A leading councillor has spoken out about the safety issues surrounding Durham’s river.
Speaking at a council meeting yesterday the leader of the council, Councillor Henig, discussed the importance of protecting the public in the areas of Durham around the River Wear.
He said: “Durham County Council will continue to work with its partners, Durham Constabulary and the relevant riverbank landowners including the cathedral, to do everything we can to support public safety.”
“We will identify any areas where safety may need to be changed.”
His comments follow a petition calling for “greater security measures” around the river after Durham University student Euan Coulthard went missing.
He was last seen on CCTV crossing Framwellgate Bridge, just prior to midnight last Wednesday.
If anyone has information regarding the disappearance of Euan Coulthard they should contact the police on 101.
The action follows a dispute over pension and working conditions which goes unresolved
