A WOMAN from East Anglia has been confirmed as the second Briton to die in the Haiti earthquake.

Ann Barnes, 59, originally from Leigh-on-Sea, Essex, was killed in the disaster, the Foreign Office confirmed.

United Nations worker Frederick Wooldridge, 41, from Kent, was the first Briton to be confirmed dead after perishing with dozens of his colleagues.

Ms Barnes was not heard from since the quake struck more than two weeks ago.

Relatives feared the United Nations worker was buried with colleagues in the rubble of the UN's headquarters in the Haiti capital of Port-au-Prince.

At the time of the quake she is believed to have been on the second floor of the main building.
