She was described as middle aged with shoulder-length reddish brown hair. An inquest in June could not ascertain who she was or how she died.

The woman’s body was recovered by Coastguard and Lifeboat teams after being seen at the shore near the fourth Seven Sister on July 4, 2017.

According to the authorities, no family has come forward to identify her.
