Northumbria Police are applauding teenager, Paige Hunter, 18, has hand-written more than 40 inspirational notes and attached them to the railings of the Wearmouth Bridge to offer hope and comfort to people considering suicide. When she returned to the bridge this week to continue her tradition, Northumbria Police Chief Superintendent Sarah Pitt presented her with a framed commendation certificate to recognize her effort to help others.

Her only explanation for posting the notes was that it was something she truly wanted to do.
