Donations have poured in for Susan Tayor, a charity swimmer who died while attempting to cross the English Channel.
She was pulled from the water and on to a support boat by her brother David, a paramedic, who battled to save her life before she was taken to hospital in nearby Boulogne-sur-Mer, where she was later pronounced dead.
More than 2,000 people have now donated to Mrs Taylor's fund-raising page as the current total raised soared to more than £42,500.
Two charities have been inundated with donations after a British woman's attempt to the swim the English Channel faltered in its final mile.
The English Channel is one of the world's busiest shipping lanes, used by hundreds of cargo vessels and ferries every day.
