Susan Vanessa Borradaile, from Wokingham, a town in the English south-east region of Berkshire, had been out to dinner on Saturday night with her husband before returning to their home in Pozzale, Empoli, and getting into the pool, reported.

Her husband tried to save her after finding her lifeless, before raising the alarm shortly after 1am, the news site said.

Borradaile's link to Wokingham was confirmed by police officers and local magistrates from documents found in her home, the UK news site, Goreading reported.

The couple had reportedly been living in Tuscany for  several years.
