Tributes paid to Angela Slater from Poole who died in Isle of Wight car cliff plunge
TRIBUTES have been paid to a “beautiful, intelligent, warm, loving” woman who died when her car went over a cliff on the Isle of Wight last week.
The body of Angela Slater, 48, from Salterns Way, Poole, was recovered from her car, after it plunged off around 200ft off a cliff, west of Compton Chine Farm in Military Road last Tuesday.
An inquest into her death was opened yesterday and a post mortem revealed she died of multiple injuries.
In a statement issued through Hampshire Constabulary, the Slater family said: "Angela was a beautiful, intelligent, warm, loving person who dedicated her life to the welfare of others, and whose energy and enthusiasm warmed the lives of everyone she touched.
“Her family are deeply shocked and saddened that she left the world in this way. At this time they would like the privacy to mourn together, and will not be issuing any further statements or photographs.”
A police investigation has found no suspicious circumstances surrounding her death at this stage.
The inquest was adjourned until a later date.
Detectives do not believe anyone else was travelling in the car and no other vehicles or people are thought to have been involved.
