Inquest into river death couple

Inquests will be held into the deaths of a couple whose bodies were discovered on the Norfolk Broads after a 13-year-old girl was found alone on a boat.

Police found Annette Creegan, 49, from Mitcham, south west London, and John Didier, 41, originally from the US, dead last September.

Divers launched a search of the River Bure after the girl was found alone on board the family's rental boat moored in an isolated inlet between Wroxham Broad and Salhouse Broad.

Norfolk Police said the circumstances suggested it was a "domestic incident".

A post-mortem examination found Ms Creegan died from strangulation while Mr Didier died from drowning.

Ms Creegan worked as a community nurse for the Trinity Hospice charity in Clapham Common, south west London, while Mr Didier had worked for the NHS.

"Killer Shrimp" found in Norfolk Broad

People using Barton Broad in Norfolk are being warned about the discovery of so-called "killer shrimps".

The non-native species Dikerogammarus villosus has been found in a small area of the Broad.

It poses no health risks to humans or pets but can have a devastating effect on the marine life of the Broad.

Sailors are being urged to wash down their boats and sailing equipment to prevent the shrimp from moving to other areas.
