Woman, 31, died after falling down 80ft blowhole on Cornish coast | The Sun

A WOMAN died after falling down an 80ft blowhole, an inquest heard.

Laura Newcombe, 31, had been on a clifftop walk with her partner.

But she fell down the hole — formed from a sea cave whose roof collapsed — which is not fenced off.

No one saw her fall down Round Hole, on Trevose Head, near Padstow, Cornwall, in June last year.

Witness David Green, who was on holiday with his mother, was taking pictures when the tragedy happened.

He said: “I could see that there was a huge hole to the sea. I found the hole quite shocking.”

He recalled seeing Laura close to the edge of the blowhole and he continued to take photos of nearby beaches, but on his return Laura had gone.

Her body was later found at the bottom of the drop.

The inquest in Truro heard Jayne had tried to take her own life in the months before her death.

But her partner said he had taken pictures of her smiling before the fall.
