The funeral of a Mitcham mother who was strangled while on a boating holiday in Norfolk was held last week. 

The private funeral of Annette Creegan, 49, of Beecholme Avenue in Mitcham, was held at St Boniface Catholic Church in Tooting on Friday.

Ms Creegan, who worked as a palliative care nurse, was described as "truly wonderful and well-respected" by her employers at Trinity Hospice in Clapham.

A post mortem confirmed she had died from strangulation while on holiday with her daughter and partner in September.

Her partner, John Didier, 41, who is believed to have jumped overboard, died from drowning.

An inquest into their deaths has been opened and adjourned.
