I feel sorry for this gentleman being in such a place that he felt no other way to face his demons. I feel for his family and friends, if he has any.
The amount of people at the station moaning because the trains were messed up due to the snow and then due to a fatatlity at slade green as we were told was amazing.
Whilst I don't agree with his actions I am not going to judge him.

This news report is so tragic,Unfortunately its just the start,I fear there will be many more people taking their own lives mainly due to what this beyond callous Government has got in store, some people that have worked so hard & now to find their whole lives turned upside down by losing everything, those very same people with jobs that the Govenment has tried to turn against those that cant genuinely find work,!! Its so sad that this poor man could not talk to anyone,.maybe he tried?who knows ? with this fast track uncaring society,It seems that unless you have money then quite simply you dont matter ,, If this is the case or if anyone loses a family member from suicide due to actions directly/indirectly caused by the Government/DWP/DLA.. They can be sued,affordable if legal action is taken by formed groups...

I'm terribly sorry for the man's family, however I want to have a bit of a whinge. All I wanted to do when I got off the bus this morning after a long night shift was go home to bed. When I got to the station the rude policeman just said that there had been an incident and the station is closed. When I asked if I could just walk across he said no, I had to walk the long way round and that the station would be closed for a long long time.
I don't mind having to walk if I had to (I was wearing canvas shoes as it wasn't snowing when I left the night before for work) however, he was just so rude and dismissive, if he had just levelled with us, said he was sorry but we couldn't use the bridge as there had been a fatality then I wouldn't have stomped home, angry and crying this morning. I would just have had cold wet feet.

Someone whinged and whined about the fact they had to walk the long way round because of the hanging on the Slade Green footbridge. There is also the speculation on his reasons for commiting suicide, assuming it was because of the government cuts etc.
I can assure you the government cuts are in no way to blame and I guess the inconvenience to people and travelling to and from work were not top of his priority list when he took his own life.
I can say this as I am the mother of his (nearly) three year old daughter. I know the reasons for his suicide, of which I am not prepared to discuss as this is private matter.
Just bear in mind before you post your comments he is someones Son...brother...Fath
er.
My daughter now has to grow up without a Daddy, in future I will have to explain the tragic circumstances and possibly the reasons why he took his own life.
The last thing I expected when I woke up this morning was a visit from the police and a suicide note posted through my door.

As we don't yet know who this man was, let alone the circumstances that led to his death, (The incident is currently being treated as unexplained) it really is quite distasteful to politicise this incident.

Your post brings into the fore the responsibility people should have for their posts here and elsewhere. Lives are affected by throw away comments on here. I am sure that too many people reading what you wrote are, like me, are saddened by this news, all the more so reading the real human hurt that has occured beyond the news print. I am sure many reading what you said are thankful we do not feel that depth of dispair in our lives that he did and admire your pluck in commenting when its such an awful time for you all. There is never the right thing to say at a time like this but it is so easy to say the wrong thing.

When I read what happened I just wanted to cry even though I do not know the perosn who died as I also have lost a very close family member through suicide in the same way. Even after three years I still miss him so much. You will get through this..it may take a very long time but your little girl will give you strength in this very dark time. My thoughts are with you both xx

In answer to your comment....Why would I lie about such a thing? That would be sick!!!
News broke on the internet whilst I was waiting for the British Transport Policeman to make their way to my house from Waterloo in the snow to inform me how he died as they wouldn`t discuss over the phone.. They have two suicide notes and he was found with ID on him, however he has not been named as he has not been formally identified. Mainly because we are currently dealing with the grief, but also because of the weather.
He didnt have mental issues, but was depressed because of recent events in his life.
Why do people put mindless comments on here without thinking about feelings?

Thank you for your kind words. Right now there seems no end to my grief and reading your words has given me hope.
I can`t get the visions nor the words he wrote in his note out of my head. Everytime I look at my little girl i get choked knowing that she doesn`t know daddy isnt coming back and I can even imagine the prospect of telling her.

News broke on the internet whilst I was waiting for the British Transport Policeman to make their way to my house from Waterloo in the snow to inform me how he died as they wouldn`t discuss over the phone.. They have two suicide notes and he was found with ID on him, however he has not been named as he has not been formally identified. Mainly because we are currently dealing with the grief, but also because of the weather. He didnt have mental issues, but was depressed because of recent events in his life. Why do people put mindless comments on here without thinking about feelings?[/p][/quote]There was no snow that day. A_in_London

I can say this as I am the mother of his (nearly) three year old daughter. I know the reasons for his suicide, of which I am not prepared to discuss as this is private matter. Just bear in mind before you post your comments he is someones Son...brother...Fath er. My daughter now has to grow up without a Daddy, in future I will have to explain the tragic circumstances and possibly the reasons why he took his own life. The last thing I expected when I woke up this morning was a visit from the police and a suicide note posted through my door.
Really?... Then why does it say this ..Officers are working to identify the man and to establish the exact circumstances surrounding his death. The incident is currently being treated as unexplained. A file is being prepared for the coroner. Anyone with information about the incident should call British Transport Police on 0800 40 50 40.
In answer to your comment....Why would I lie about such a thing? That would be sick!!!

There WAS snow that day, as I had to walk half the way to work due to the fact police stopped buses coming through Slade Green due to the tragedy at the train station.
