A woman, believed to be from Sudbury, is feared dead after going missing on a cruise as it passed over the Atlantic Ocean.

The woman, reported as being Jennifer Ann Warner, was reported missing by her travel partner on December 13 during a cruise on the Saga Sapphire ship, which had left Southampton and was bound for Barbados.

It is feared she went overboard at some point and a search was conducted over a 36-hour period, according to a statement from Saga Holidays, the cruise operator.

Her travel companion flew back to the UK after the incident, and a memorial service was held on the ship.

Mrs Warner was a member of a bridge club based at the Sudbury Institute Club.

A Saga spokesman said various agencies such as the police and coastguard have investigated the incident
