Women (and men and children) walk into the sea at Weymouth and many other seaside places throughout the day and sometimes after dark.
The OHEC does not make it clear why this occurrence is newsworthy.

I walked into the sea just South of Chesil Cove a few days ago - and, begorrah, was it cold ?? Undersea visibility wasn't too clever, either, and I only saw a couple of tiny Wrasse, before giving it up as a bad job after 15 minutes. I'm a bit worried that I may have neglected my duty in failing to report my trauma (pr: 'trAUma' - NOT 'trAWma', please note!!) to the Echo, for publication, since every minor mishap these days seems to constitute a trauma!! If any survivors of the bombing of Dresden and other such German cities can still be found, they'll tell you what REAL trauma is all about - and I doubt you'll hear any mention of snapped pencil-leads or broken shoelaces in THEIR recollections....

I am so glad I don't actually pay for this tripe.
As I no longer live in Weymouth any more I read this to keep up to date on local news, but I have to say I am beginning to wonder if I should not be using my time more wisely.
The standard of journalism and general writing is beyond belief these days.
I always thought a newspaper was there to inform its readers of stories of interest, nowadays we get a mix of sensationalism and non stories.
This particular one falls into the latter category, to say it is poor would be a massive understatement.
Do people actually get paid for this?
