A Lincolnshire Police spokesperson said: "One of the lines of inquiry is looking into if she was splashed by water as she was on the path."

Her son-in-law Peter Wheeldon said on Monday that the road she was walking along had been flooded before the fall.

Officers have asked for anyone with information to come forward.
