Much loved former head of Havelock was in chronic pain when she jumped off the Humber Bridge

THE former headteacher of Havelock School was suffering from chronic pain in her face when she jumped off the Humber Bridge.

Tragic Jane Disbrey was known as Jane Dyer during her 10 years at the Grimsby school up until 2006, when she moved to a school in Hull.

She had told medical professionals how her eyes “felt like paper cuts when she blinked”, but that she wanted to be able to manage the severe pain to enjoy life with her devoted husband, Stephen.

On the day she died, Mrs Disbrey, 59, had a hair appointment, and told her husband she planned to visit a friend.

  1. Facial pain is horrible. You can’t escape it. 20 years I had a decent life. 5 years of lowered meds and I’m on the edge.

  2. very scary that she was overlooked by the medical community in some way.
