River Hull railings put up in memory of Stuart Gilson
- 24 January 2014
- From the section Humberside
Railings have been put up at the spot where a man is believed to have fallen into a river two years ago.
The body of 21-year-old Stuart Gilson, from Hull, was found in the Humber Estuary six weeks after he disappeared.
He was last seen on CCTV crossing Drypool Bridge over the River Hull after a night out on 28 January 2012.
Hull City Council said it had put up the railings in conjunction with Premier Foods, who owned the land at the time of Mr Gilson's disappearance.
A plaque on the barrier near the Drypool Bridge reads: "It was said one night I walked this way, but on this path I did not stay, I give these railings to one and all and I hope that, if in danger, they stop your fall."
Mr Gilson's body was found on 10 March 2012 by two people in a yacht between Brough Haven and Gilberdyke.
His family later campaigned for protective barriers to be installed between the bridge and the water's edge.
Their call was backed by Coroner Geoffrey Saul, who recorded a verdict of accidental death at his inquest.
The inquest heard there was no evidence that Mr Gilson had intended to take his own life or that he had been assaulted.
