Holidaymaker missing, believed drowned

The search continues for the body of a woman who disappeared while swimming with her husband in Lanzarote. Rescuers say the search has been extended to include the northern coastline of Fuerteventura. The woman disappeared on Monday, at 6.30pm, while her husband was being rescued by the emergency services. Her husband explained that he was standing next to his wife when a huge surge dragged her out to sea. He dived in after her but had to be rescued himself after getting into difficulties.
