'Police have launched a murder enquiry following the discovery of a woman’s body in a house in Siddall. Officers have made two arrests in connection with the investigation and those men remain in custody for questioning. I am still very much appealing for anyone who may have information or have seen suspicious behaviour outside the address to come forwards."
