TESTS are still on-going in a bid to establish the cause of a Wigan woman’s death.

Christine Burgess, aged 51, was found in her back garden of her home in Crabtree Road, Worsley Hall, by neighbours at around midday on Tuesday.

The cause of her death is, as yet, unknown.

Detectives have spent the last few days at the scene.

The mother-of-three was found at the rear of her property, just yards from her house, on a patch of land which runs behind a set of bungalows.

Tests were still being carried out yesterday to determine whether or not there are any suspicious circumstances surrounding Ms Burgess’s death.
