Police have 'examined a millionaire's speedboat' as they probe the death of a British woman who was hit by a propeller while swimming off the coast of Corfu.

Hedge fund manager Rob Lucas, 58, his son, 18, and daughter, 22, were questioned as possible witnesses by officers after Claire Glatman died on Monday.

Mrs Glatman, 60, the wife of multimillionaire property tycoon Mark, was killed when she was hit by a vessel while in the sea off Avlaki beach.

Her body was pulled from the water shortly before 10am, taken to Corfu General Hospital and identified by her family's lawyer yesterday.

The speedboat thought to have been involved - not Mr Lucas's - was found abandoned at a nearby beach and moved to a local marina for forensic investigation.

Mr Lucas and his children, who reportedly own a house on Corfu, had their rib-style boat inspected by police.

Another vessel, which is believed to belong to a local who had claimed they tried to rescue Mrs Glatman, was also examined.

But officers say they still need to look at other boats that were in the area when the tragedy happened and speak to their owners.

Sources claimed to the Sun the Lucas family had been with their vessel in another part of Corfu at the time and are not involved.

The trio, who have a £5million house in Hertfordshire, were also said not to be part of police inquiries and had helped officers as potential witnesses.

Mrs Glatman, from Bedale, North Yorkshire, was on holiday with her husband, 63, and the eldest of her two daughters. She also has two sons.

Coroner Ioannis Aivatidis said Mrs Glatman had injuries to her left wrist, arm, chest, pelvis and upper right leg, leading to internal and external haemorrhaging.

Aivatidis added Mrs Glatman was hit hard by the speedboat and died after just a few moments.

He said the wounds were so severe no
