The close-knit community of Barrow is in shock after the tragic death of a local woman who drowned while on a family holiday in Lanzarote.
Mother-of-three Nikki Bate (48) drowned after getting into difficulty off the shore of Famara Beach, near the resort of Caleta de Famara. The tragedy happened last Thursday (August 15) while Nikki was holidaying with her children and husband, Anthony.
A spokesman from the British Foreign Office confirmed the death saying: “We are aware of the death of a British national, Nikki Bate, in Lanzarote, on 15 August. We are providing consular assistance to the family at this difficult time.”
