An Iraqi-Kurdish woman who lost contact with her husband in the middle of the sea is the first confirmed victim of the Channel migrant tragedy,.

The body of Baran Nouri Hamadami is understood to have been identified by a relative at a facility in France after 27 migrants drowned in Wednesday's boat disaster.

It comes after her husband told The Telegraph on Thursday that he had been following the movements of his spouse – who was also known as Maryam – during her boat journey when her GPS signal suddenly cut off.
