Woman's body found

A WOMAN’S body was pulled from Daveys Bridge at Gatton this morning and another eight Lockyer Valley residents are confirmed dead.

At about 8.30am emergency services were notified of a woman who had washed up against the banks at Gatton South.

A Helidon man, evacuated to Gatton, went to investigate a foul smell only to discover the woman’s body.

“There was no hope for her... she was naked and blue... she must have washed down from upstream at Grantham,” the man said.

“This is bloody awful. I’ve already lost my house and now this.”
