A teacher from Britain has died while on holiday in the Dominican Republic, the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) has confirmed.

Sian Louise Marshall-Plewes died in the early hours of Saturday.

It is thought she had got into difficulty while swimming off Sosua Beach.

Pupils from the Priory City of Lincoln Academy, in Skellingthorpe Road, have left tributes for their English teacher on a specially created Facebook page.

The FCO said it was providing consular assistance to Ms Marshall-Plewes's family "at this difficult time".
