A woman’s body found on a footpath in Ilfracombe on Friday is not that of missing Tracey Topham, police have said.

It is thought to be that of another Barnstaple woman, aged 50, reported missing the day before.

The body was found at 11.30am by a Coastguard search team on a path near the swimming pool at Hillsborough. Police officers and the SAR helicopter from Chivenor were also involved in the search.

Her identity has not been made public as yet.
