Divers' bodies officially named
Dayhouse Quarry
Sonar equipment was used in the search
Police have officially named a couple whose bodies were recovered from a diving centre in the Forest of Dean.

Janine Louise Davison-Evans, 27, from Roseworth in Stockton-on-Tees and Hank Tony Austin, 25, of Ascot, Berkshire, went missing on Friday 9 April.

The pair failed to return from the quarry in Tidenham, Gloucestershire.

In a joint statement their families said: "Janine and Hank were truly loved and will be sadly missed by all their family and friends."

The couple were reported missing on Good Friday after their car was found parked at the National Diving Centre.

A police search followed and two bodies were found. They were recovered from the water on Wednesday.

Post-mortem examinations were being carried out to try to find out what happened to them.

Sonar equipment and a remote-controlled submersible were used in the hunt.

The diving centre, which opened at the flooded Forest of Dean quarry a year ago, remained closed as investigations continued.
