Saltburn cliff deaths: Head teacher 'devastated'
The former head teacher of two teenagers who were found dead at the bottom of a cliff said she is devastated by their deaths.
The bodies of Harry Watson and Alex Yeoman were found by officers at Huntcliff in Saltburn, at about 19:00 GMT on Friday.
The 17-year-olds had been pupils at Freebrough Academy in Brotton.
Principal Rachel Prentice said a moment of silence will be observed and pupils are being supported.
She said: "We are both shocked and saddened by the devastating news of our ex-students. Our first thoughts are with their friends and families.
"We are a very close knit community so the devastating loss of these two lovely young men, who had so much to live for, will have a huge impact on both students and staff.
"They were both very positive members of our school team and we have very fond memories of them."
The school is also opening a book a of condolence for each boy.
Cleveland Police are continuing to investigate the circumstances but said they were not treating the deaths as suspicious.
