An inquest has been opened and adjourned into the deaths of two people at a luxury country hotel in Essex.
A brief hearing heard that Komba Kpakiwa, 31, from Erith in Kent, and Josephine Newahun Foday, 22, from south London were found floating face down at about 7.30pm on Saturday.
Attempts were made to save them, but they were unsuccessful. Essex Police said that a provisional post-mortem examination found that their deaths were consistent with drowning.
A police spokesman said the deaths were not being treated as suspicious.
Witnesses, including hotel guests, had seen them alive in swimming gear 15 minutes earlier.
Police are focusing on the relationship between the victims as part of their investigation.
