Hertfordshire Police are appealing for witnesses and information after the body of a woman was found in a lake in Welwyn Garden City on Saturday morning.

Dog walkers reported seeing the body in the Lagoon in Waterside, to police at 9.11am. Police and Fire & Rescue attended and recovered the body.

The lady is described as being a white female believed to be aged in her 50s or 60s, with light brown hair (possibly with some grey in it) that was in curlers. She is around five foot five to five foot nine tall, wearing white Reebok trainers, black trousers, and olive green coloured jumper.

She has hooped earrings in both ears – one small and one large in each. She was also wearing several gold neck chains and two bracelets on her right wrist, one gold and one silver in colour. A parka style brown coat with a furry hood and a shopping bag were found nearby.

At this stage, police are not treating it at as a suspicious death.

Detective Inspector Dianne Watson said: “We are appealing to anyone who thinks they recognise the description of this lady to get in touch. If you have any information that could help, please call the police non-emergency number ‘101’.”
