The former work colleagues of a woman who was injured in an attack in which her husband was killed, have spoken of their shock at the news.
Margaret Pratt's husband Ian was murdered on board their boat in St Lucia at the weekend. The couple were sailing around the world. She is the former Chief Executive of St Mary's Hospital on Isle of Wight.
"This is dreadful and shocking news. Margaret is an inspirational leader and great to work with. She worked on the Isle of Wight for the Primary Care Trust for two periods - as interim Director of Finance in 2005/2006 and as interim CEO for 9 months in 2008. Our deepest condolences go to Margaret and her family."
