A man whose body was pulled from the Norfolk Broads has been identified.

A US national living in Mitcham, south London, John Didier, 41, drowned during a boat holiday with his partner Annette Creegan and her daughter, aged 13.

He was found shortly after the body of Ms Creegan, 49, was recovered from the River Bure on Sunday.

A post mortem showed Ms Creegan, also of Mitcham, had died of strangulation and police are treating the deaths as a "domestic incident".

A file is being prepared for the coroner for inquest.

No-one else is being sought in connection with the deaths.

Their bodies were found after the teenage daughter was found alone on a hire boat on Saturday.

She has been interviewed by officers and is now being comforted by family members.
