Woman’s Body Pulled From Water On St Martin’s

View towards Great Bay, St Martin's

The body of a woman has been recovered from the water of Great Bay, St Martin’s this morning.

Falmouth Coastguard received a call from a concerned person just before midday.

The St Mary’s lifeboat was launched as the report suggested there were people, possibly children, in the water. The lifeboat arrived at the same time as the helicopter from RNAS Culdrose. Chris Thomas, the St Mary’s Lifeboat Launch Authority said the RNLB Whiteheads had to go the long way around St Martin’s because of the extremely low tide.

Police officers from St Mary’s have travelled to St Martin’s and it’s likely the body will be brought back to St Mary’s. Falmouth Coastguard are not releasing any further information until police formalities have been concluded.

Devon and Cornwall police have reported that there are no suspicious circumstances and a file has been prepared for the coroner. Next of kin have been informed.
