The scene in September Credit: ITV News Anglia

An inquest's been hearing how the naked body of a woman was found tied up in a river on the Norfolk Broads, having been strangled by her partner.

Annette Creegan was discovered by a fire service diving team on September 2nd. John Didier had killed her and then drowned himself - his ankles and wrists weighed down by dumb bells.

The couple had hired a boat on the Broads. A 13-year-old girl had also been on the boat, and she was discovered alone by a Broads Ranger.

The Coroner William Armstrong recorded a verdict of unlawful killingin respect of Annette Creegan. He said that John Didier died from drowning.

"It's a grotesque irony that this happened in the idyllic surroundings of the Norfolk Broads."
