Drunk British nurse found frozen to death

London, Jan 22 (IANS) A dental nurse in Britain was found frozen to death on her sister's front lawn after having gone on a night out.

Bernadette Lee, 25, of Kent was on a night out and was discovered dead without a coat Sunday, Daily Express reported Tuesday.

According to her father, she was on the way to her sister Jodie's house but after finding it empty she either slipped and hit her head or fell asleep and succumbed to hypothermia.

"Her only bad side was that she liked to have too much to drink and that is what killed her. Her body was found in her sister Jodie's front garden Sunday morning," the father said.

Only hours earlier, Lee had been at a local nightclub. She was wearing a dress and had taken off her shoes, said witnesses.

Her body was discovered around 7.30 a.m. after temperatures in the coastal town of Deal plunged to -2.2 Celsius overnight.

"She was a beautiful girl and very intelligent," Lee's father said.
