Police are investigating after a woman's body was pulled from the water in Devon.

The casualty in her 40s was discovered near Brixham Laboratory early on Sunday morning.

Officers are treating her death as unexplained but not suspicious.

They say a man in his 60s was found on nearby with a "number of injuries".

The casualty was rushed to Derriford Hospital, where he remains in a serious condition.

The pair are believed to have been visiting the area on holiday and police are appealing for clues.

"We are continuing to investigate the circumstances around this incident and our enquiries remain ongoing into when and where these two people entered the water. 

"The man and woman are believed to have been visiting Devon from Huddersfield together, with their dog who has been taken into the care of kennels.

"We're keen to hear from anyone who was in the area of Brixham Laboratory, Oxon Cove and Freshwater Quarry Car Park between 10pm on Saturday 10th August and 5.45am on Sunday 11th August".

Detective Inspector Dawn Periam
