A 37-year-old man and a 46-year-old man were arrested on suspicion of murder and they remain in police custody for questioning.

Detective Inspector Matthew Moore said: “We have launched an investigation into the woman’s death but at this moment, are unable to say how she has died until a post mortem has been completed. We are now in the process of finding her family and telling them the tragic news.

“The investigation is at a very early stage and if anyone has any information as to what happened, I would ask you to come forward and speak to us.”
