Friends of a woman found at the foot of cliffs at Porthleven on Saturday morning have described her as "Wonder Woman" and said they hoped she can "relax now."

Police have yet to formally identify the woman, but she has been named on social media as Leyna Tucker, who lived in the port.

Tributes have been left on Facebook by friends, with one describing her as "queen of breakfast" while another wrote: "Sleep tight Wonder Woman, going to miss you loads Leyna Tucker.

A third friend wrote on Saturday evening: "Leyna Tucker please relax now, but you are an amazing lady and always will be xxx my thoughts go out to all the family xxx"

Only four days earlier, on Tuesday last week, Leyna had spoken about her gratitude for her friends, writing on Facebook: "Lucky to have a circle of wonderful friends who, no matter what, are always there!"

Police said they were contacted at around 6.50am on Saturday, after concerns were reported for the welfare of a woman in her 40s at Loe Bar Road.

Penlee Lifeboat confirmed that both the inshore lifeboat Mollie and Ivor Dent, and its offshore lifeboat the Ivan Ellan, were launched from Newlyn just after 7am. They were later spotted hunting the waters around Loe Bar and Porthleven Beach.

At the request of police, Falmouth Coastguard Operations Centre also paged Porthleven Coastguard Rescue Team at 7.20am, to help in the search.

They conducted a search from the land and subsequently discovered the body of a woman in her 40s.

At 8.10am the Porthleven team was joined by Mullion Coastguard Rescue Team, who helped with a cliff rescue recovery.

The casualty was transferred to South West Ambulance Service, but was subsequently pronounced dead. Her family was informed shortly afterwards.

Police have now confirmed that the death is not being treated as suspicious and a file has been prepared for the coroner.

A coastguard spokesman said: "This is one of the many aspects of what coastguard rescue officers are trained for. Both coastguard rescue teams displayed excellent professionalism in challenging circumstances.

"Our thoughts are with the family of the casualty at this sad time."

A spokesperson for Penlee Lifeboat said: "This was a very difficult shout for both our volunteer crews.

"As always, they dealt with the situation in a calm, compassionate and professional manner, giving assistance to the Devon & Cornwall Police and Porthleven Coastguard Rescue Team who were both on scene."
