Tribute to victim of King Harry Ferry tragedy

Tributes have been paid to a woman who died at the King Harry Ferry in Cornwall. Ann Pewter died when a car in which she was a passenger, went into the water from the slipway last month. Her family have also thanked everyone involved in attempts to rescue her and her dogs.

We have no words to express our thanks to the diver for his selfless efforts and disregard of his own personal safety in attempting to recover the car. We would also like to thank many friends, neighbours and family whose exceptional kindness and support has been invaluable as we come to terms with our loss.

Ann and her husband had retired to the South West and had lived in Tavistock for a number of years. Her family say she was a keen photographer who was passionately interested in wildlife.

She had holidayed in Cornwall frequently and loved photographing its beautiful gardens and spectacular coast. Her loss, and that of her lovely dogs, has created an enormous hole in our lives that cannot be filled.
