‘Our enquiries into the circumstances surrounding Freya’s death continue.’
Her death came just days after a 12-year-old girl and 17-year-old boy tragically died while swimming off Bournemouth Beach after huge waves – thought to have been caused by a passing boat – made a number of bathers struggle in the water.
The boy, named by friends as Joe Abbess, had gone with friends to Bournemouth last Wednesday during half-term.
His family said they are ‘heartbroken and devastated’ at the loss of a ‘fabulous young man’ and ‘talented trainee chef’ who was enjoying a day at Bournemouth beach when he died.
The tragedy also claimed the life of 12-year-old Sunnah Khan, from High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, whose family paid a heartfelt tribute to her as an ‘angel’.
