INVESTIGATIONS are continuing today into the discovery of a woman's body in woodland.

The dead woman was found shortly after 4pm yesterday in the village of Watlington, near King's Lynn, Norfolk.

The death is not being linked to those of five women in Suffolk in December.

A police spokeswoman said the death was being treated as unexplained and the area remained sealed off for a forensic examination.

Detective Chief Inspector Neil Firm, of Norfolk Police, said: "Inquiries are being made to establish the identity of the woman, whose age is not yet known.

"A forensic examination of the scene will take place before the body is removed and a Home Office post-mortem carried out. This is likely to be some time later today."
