AN elderly woman pulled from the sea during last week’s heatwave died of natural causes, police have said.

Freda Moor, 82, was pulled from the water at East Wittering beach last Monday before paramedics attempted to give resuscitation, but she was pronounced dead at the scene.

Sussex Police said a postmortem found that the East Wittering resident’s death was due to natural causes and there will be no inquest.
