Police appeal for help to identify women rescued from lake

The incident took place yesterday afternoon

Yesterday we reported on an incident at the UEA lake, in which a unidentified woman was rescued after she reportedly went into the lake. She has been described as being in critical condition after being taken to Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital.

The woman has been described as being between 40 and 50 years old, medium build, with short dark greying hair. She was wearing dark blue jeans, with a brown leather belt patterned with metal studs, a grey long-sleeved top with a sequin pattern on the front, white/cream faux fur front button coat and brown laced ankle boots.

An air ambulance was called to the scene.

Police though are struggling to identify her, a spokesperson for Norfolk Constabulary stated; “No personal belongings, other than a key attached to a red Cath Kidston key ring, have been found and despite carrying out a number of enquiries, efforts to identify the woman have been unsuccessful.

Anyone who believes they can identify the woman or saw someone fitting that description near the university is encouraged to contact the police.”

Anyone with information should contact Norwich CID on 101.
