Video of a teenager performing a stomach-churning stunt on the arch of Rhyl ‘s blue bridge has sparked debate on social media.
James Corr, 16, from Colwyn Bay is filmed walking up the arch before performing a back flip on the bridge.
North Wales Police said no offence had been committed but Denbighshire council condemned the stunt saying such activities were a serious safety risk.
Here’s what you had to the say about the stunt on the Daily Post Facebook page .
“Support the young man instead of condemning him”
Robin Owen said: “Free-runners do not attempt anything without having first practiced…practiced… practiced. Support the young man instead of condemning him. At least his career choice is far more exciting than most!”
@AntonRodrigues tweeted: “Fair Play, brave kid.”
Peter Carlton Harrison wrote: “Free runners know the risks. If it goes wrong, they pay the price. They do the prep work dozens of times beforehand.
“If it’s not this kid, there’s thousands of others around the world who video their exploits, that influence, or could possibly lead others to follow their example. Stupidity, probably. Entertaining, definitely. No crime committed. Worthy story.”
Andrea Lloyd commented: “Wow that’s brave! Well done James it’s only careless when you don’t know your limits!”
Becky Morris agreed: “I see absolutely no problem with what he did. Yes it was dangerous but that was the idea, he clearly knew what he was doing. Personally from a mum’s point of view my son would be in more danger with me than doing the stunt.
“We all did dangerous things at that age it’s all part of finding yourself. I’d be more worried If he jumped off the bridge. I say let the talented young man do what he likes. As they say he did nothing illegal!”

James Harrison simply wrote: “Cool. Respect for that little dude.”
Maria Anna Gilmour said: “With all the publicity hopefully in the near future this young man will be a stunt double in movies making lots of money, wonder if he will be called stupid then?”
Saveenergy said: “James, well done. Fly while you are young & fit; life & age will slow you down soon enough, but you’ll have had he satisfaction of achievement & joy of freedom, those memory’s will stay with you till you die.
“Better than frying your brain on drugs in front of a computer screen. Fly & be free…..BUT…. be safe !!”
“OK, carry on but other people have to pick up the pieces”
Stella Morris wrote: “That makes me feel sick but it’s fantastic.”
@uselessfuel said: “Unbelievable when you realise there is a main road running beneath it & 100Ft drop to the river below #tidy.”
@HaywardJune thinks: “Ok carry on but other people have to pick up the pieces.”
Brian Rawlinson said: “Perhaps the local authorities should put a more significant barrier to stop access.”
Eirlys Roberts said: “What would have happened if something went seriously wrong? Who would have got the blame? And the poor family who had to grieve! Total idiot!”
Lesley Grimes agreed: “Oh my god. I hope my teenager never does anything this stupid.”
James Corr himself commented on the Daily Post Facebook post, saying: “To everyone who is condemning my stunt, I understand everyone is entitled to their own opinion however, I am in no way ‘stupid’, ‘idiotic’ etc.
“I understand my own abilities and wouldn’t try this stunt if I had the slightest bit of doubt in my head while up on the bridge! Thank you to everyone for the kind words and support, I very much appreciate it.”
