An inquest was held this morning into the death of Margaret Read.


A woman who drowned at Blakeney Point was managing her Alzheimer’s well and had rediscovered her sense of wonder in recent times, her daughter said.

An inquest this morning heard the body of Margaret Read, 70, was found in Morston in February and daughter Michelle described her as ‘kind of amazing’.

She said: “She was very functional and the phase she was in with her Alzheimer’s increased her sense of wonder and her sense of being in the moment.

“She was still very much herself and she just found things wonderful.”

Although the family say they still have questions about how Margaret came to be in the water, they were pleased she was doing something she loved.

Michelle said: “I think she had a bit longer in her but it is a comfort that she was in a glorious place, enjoying herself up to her last moments.”
