Two people - a 47-year-old man and a 49-year-old woman - were arrested on suspicion of murder and an investigation has been underway since.

Now, following a post mortem examination, officers say the woman’s death is not believed to be suspicious.

The two former suspects have been released with no further action to be taken.

The woman’s family has been updated by investigating officers and a file will be prepared for the coroner.
