Police officers are investigating the unexplained death of a woman who was found in a house in Ipswich.
Police were called by the ambulance service shortly before 6.20pm yesterday (Monday, June 3) following reports that a woman in her 50s had been found inside a property in Waterford Road, Ipswich.
A spokesman for Suffolk Constabulary said: "A cordon remains in place while an investigation continues into the circumstances of what has happened.
"At this time the death is being treated as unexplained."
Next of kin have been informed.
Neighbours have expressed their shock at the news of the death which happened at a house in a quite cul de sac. One person laid a bouquet of flowers outside of the property.
One neighbour who wanted to stay anonymous, said: "It's a terrible shame something like this happening.
"I suppose there was a reason and they will get to the bottom of it eventually but this is a very quiet cul de sac.
"I've lived here 12 years and I've never known anything like this to happen here."
Another said: "When I got to my house I found that there were police cars already in the street about 4pm yesterday.
"They were there at least until I went to sleep last night and they're back again today."
Officers are asking anyone who has any information in relation to this incident to contact Suffolk police on 101, quoting reference 37/31654/19.
