The body of a Suffolk diver was discovered five weeks after he went missing in Dover.
Jane Hammond, 56, from Lowestoft, said she believed her partner of 20 years, George Spence, may have fallen into Dover harbour and been knocked out as he entered the water.
The 61-year-old had travelled to the Kent coast from his home in Lowestoft to join a wreck salvage.
On April 28, he and shipmates went for a meal and drinks while their chartered vessel, the Suffolk Spirit, was docked in the harbour.
It was the last time he was seen until his body was found at the former hover port terminal on the morning of Wednesday, June 3.
