A mother-of-two whose husband died when his car crashed into a Peak District river was found dead in her bath after drinking a 'significant' amount of alcohol, an inquest heard.

Ruth Cox, 43, tragically passed away last November - almost four years after the death of David Cox whose Toyota Aygo skidded off an icy path and ended upside down in the freezing River Wye. Ms Cox, whose Toyota RAV4 also crashed into the river five minutes later, desperately tried to save her husband's life.
