Woman dies in stormy har­bour

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A WOMAN has died and po­lice have re­sumed the search for a miss­ing pen­sioner as parts of the UK faced dis­rup­tion caused by heavy rain and strong winds.

Folke­stone and Dun­geness coast­guard, Dover lifeboat and a he­li­copter were scram­bled at 7am yes­ter­day af­ter re­ceiv­ing re­ports that the woman was in the wa­ter off Folke­stone har­bour.

But a Kent po­lice spokesman said the 39-year-old woman “sadly passed away de­spite ef­forts from emer­gency ser­vices to save her”.

In South Wales, po­lice said the search for Rus­sell Sher­wood, 69, of Neath, who went miss­ing yes­ter­day, would con­tinue de­pen­dent on weather con­di­tions.

Of­fi­cers were fo­cus­ing on the River Og­more, where a part of his car was found.
