Body found on beach at Selsey is identified

A Hampshire police spokesperson named her as Janet Sainsbury, a 71-year-old from Surrey. The pensioner was reported missing on August 2 and was last seen in Gosport that evening.

Her body was found amongst rocks on Selsey beach, close to Bunn Leisure’s holiday park. Her family has been informed and a post mortem is due to take place this week. Police said at the time that the death was not being treated as suspicious, and a Hampshire police spokesperson said this was still the case.
