A funeral is to be held for an unidentified woman whose body was found at a cove near Eastbourne.

The woman, who was found at Birling Gap, was described as middle aged with shoulder-length reddish brown hair.

An inquest in June could not ascertain who she was or how she died.

The woman’s body was recovered by Coastguard and Lifeboat teams after being seen at the shore near the fourth Seven Sister on July 4 last year.

According to the authorities, no family has come forward to identify her.

Her funeral is to be held on Tuesday, September 25, at Hailsham Cemetary, at 1pm.

All are welcome to attend, and anyone who wishes to send flowers can forward them to Haine and Son, of Polegate.
