A heartbroken family have spoken out after the death of a "lovely" woman who was washed up on a Welsh beach.

Local cops and the UK Coastguard were seen near Pennar at Pembroke Dock on May 1 after reports of a body being found.

Tragic Sian Batchelor’s family has been informed and her death is being treated as unexplained, reports the Mirror.

In a heartbreaking statement, her grieving family said: "We are devastated by our loss. Sian was a beautiful, funny, loving person.

"We will treasure the good times we had with her. We would now like time to grieve and would ask to be given privacy in which to do so.”

The force said earlier this week: "We are investigating the circumstances surrounding the sudden death of a woman who was found on a beach near Pennar, Pembrokeshire, at about 5pm on Tuesday, April 30.

"Her family has been informed. The death is currently being treated as unexplained."

Officers investigating the circumstances surrounding Sian’s death have appealed for anyone with information, sightings of Sian or contact from Sian, between Thursday April 25 to Tuesday April 30 to get in contact.

Several people online shared their own grief for the family. One person said: "Beautiful lady, so sad. Condolences to family."

Another added: "Another beautiful girl gone too soon, love to family, friends and all who are grieving their loss." Another person said: "Devastating news. Sincere sympathy to her family and friends. RIP Sian."
