The partner of a British woman whose body was found floating in a port in Menorca was arrested after the discovery, it emerged today.

Andrew Bulmer, 54, was detained by the police on Tuesday after his partner Andrea Leadenham, 53, was found dead near their yacht, called Trireme.

Well-placed sources said he was arrested before an autopsy confirmed that the vacationer had died of drowning and there were no signs of violence on her body.

It is expected that Mr. Bulmer will be formally told in the coming days that he can leave the island and not receive criminal charges for the death of his partner.

The post-mortem supported the original police theory that Andrea slipped when she boarded the yacht after too many drinks and ended up in the water according to well-placed sources.

Her body was found Tuesday around 2.45 am, about 45 minutes after Guardia Civil officers were called to a bar in a port called Port d & # 39; Addaia in northeastern Menorca to handle reports of a fight between the British couple. .

Mr. Bulmer was alone when they arrived and is supposed to have been with officers when they made their discovery after telling them that his partner had already left the bar.

An insider said: & Civil Guard arrested him by order of the court shortly after the body was discovered because the autopsy had not yet taken place at that time.

& # 39; The investigating judge wanted to ensure that he did not leave the island until the results were known, in case something unusual had happened. The autopsy showed that the British lady died of drowning. & # 39;

Another well-placed source said: & # 39; The post-mortem has ruled out any cheating. & # 39;

Mr Bulmer was not immediately clear this morning.

Port d & # 39; Addaia is situated on the headland between Cala Moli and a very picturesque cove and provides a perfect natural harbor. It is also a residential area with a number of restaurants and bars.

There is no beach in Port Addadia, but there are two very attractive maintained beaches west along the coast at Arenal den Castell and Son Parc and another southeast in Es Grau that is part of a nature reserve and very idyllic.

None of the bar where the reported row took place between the British couple – the Corner Bar – was available for comment early this morning.
