The body of a woman that was recovered from the River Trent yesterday has been confirmed as Glenys Kirk from Tickhill.

At about 2.50pm yesterday (Monday) a member of the public reported seeing what he thought might be a body in the river, near Trent Bridge at Gainsborough.

With the assistance of the Fire and Rescue Service, the body was recovered from the river at Morton about an hour later.

The body has since been identified as that of 65-year-old Glenys Kirk from Tickhill near Doncaster.

She was certified deceased at the scene.

Glenys had been reported missing at around 8.20am that same morning when she failed to meet a friend.

A post mortem will be carried out later today to establish the cause of her death and an inquest will be opened in due course.

Lincolnshire Police are preparing a report for the Coroner but are not treating the death as suspicious.
