Dog walker drowned in fast-moving Cefn Sidan tide

A woman on a Mothering Sunday walk on a Carmarthenshire beach drowned after being cut off by a fast-moving tide, an inquest has heard.

Susan Wendy Hackett, 68, was with her daughter Emma and eight dogs on Cefn Sidan beach on 30 March.

Mrs Hackett's daughter tried to ring 999 on her mobile phone but could not because her hands were too wet.

Coroner Mark Layton recorded a verdict of death by misadventure at the hearing in Llanelli.
