A woman who died after being swept away by floodwater was the former high sheriff of Derbyshire. Annie Hall’s body was found in the early hours of Friday after she was carried away in Darley Dale near Matlock.
Hall served as the county’s high sheriff in 2017. “I am shocked and deeply saddened by the untimely and tragic death of my friend,” Derbyshire’s chief constable, Peter Goodman, said. “Annie was a great leader in Derbyshire in both industry and on the civic front. She will be hugely missed.”
