Police found Annette Creegan, 49, from Mitcham, south west London, and John Didier, 41, originally from the US but living with Ms Creegan at the time, dead on the Norfolk Broads last September.

Divers launched a search of the River Bure after the girl was found alone on board a rental boat moored in an isolated inlet between Wroxham Broad and Salhouse Broad.

A post-mortem examination found Ms Creegan died from strangulation while Mr Didier died from drowning. The trio had been holidaying on the Norfolk Broads for about a week.

Ms Creegan worked as a community nurse for the Trinity Hospice charity in Clapham Common, south west London, while Mr Didier had worked for the NHS.

The inquests will be held at Norwich Coroner’s Court this morning.
