UN Briton's quake death confirmed
The death of a second Briton in the Haiti earthquake was confirmed today.
Ann Barnes, 59, originally from Leigh-on-Sea, Essex, was killed in the disaster, the Foreign Office confirmed.
A Foreign Office spokeswoman said: "We can confirm the death of a second British national in the Haiti earthquake.
"The UN has confirmed to us the body of Ann Barnes has been identified."
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.
Ms Barnes had no children and was not married but had a French partner on the island.
She was a personal assistant to the UN police commissioner and had worked for the UN for more than 20 years.
She had lived in Sierra Leone, Mozambique, Cyprus and Congo since leaving Essex aged about 20.
The former British Airways stewardess had been in Haiti for more than two years.
