The holiday group said she has died after tragedy struck on Friday.

Paramedics rushed to the scene after reports a person was unconscious at the site, the business's newest resort, north of Luton.

"We are in contact with her family, and we are offering support to them and any of our colleagues at Woburn Forest who have been affected.

Last year, a housekeeper died at the Woburn Forest site.

She had been in a chalet for more than an hour before a family returned to find her dead. She was pronounced dead at the scene and the death was not treated as suspicious.
