Further details have been released about a woman who was pronounced dead after being pulled from the water on Wednesday.

A spokesperson from HM Coastguard has confirmed that the woman was taking part in a diving trip on the Manacles off the coast of Porthoustock when she got into difficulty.

Falmouth RNLI lifeboat and Falmouth Coastguard Rescue Team responded to a call at 12.45pm from the dive vessel and attended along with HM Coastguard's helicopter from Newquay.

The lifeboat crew and the winchman went onto the vessel and the casualty was winched by helicopter and transported to Royal Cornwall Hospital in Treliske.

Falmouth Coastguard Rescue Team manned an alternative landing site as a precaution but this was ultimately not needed.

Yesterday, police confirmed that the woman in her 50s from Oxfordshire was pronounced deceased at the hospital later on that day.

Her next of kin have been informed and a file is being prepared for the coroner.
