A post-mortem examination was carried out earlier today on 67-year-old Russian national Boris Berezovsky, who was found dead at a residential property in Mill Lane, Ascot, on Saturday.
The results of the post-mortem examination, carried out by a Home Office pathologist, have found the cause of death is consistent with hanging. The pathologist has found nothing to indicate a violent struggle.

Further tests will now be carried out, including toxicology and histology examinations, the results of which are likely to take several weeks.
A forensic examination of the property in Ascot, which is being carried out by Scenes of Crime Officers, will continue for several days and a cordon will remain in place until these have been completed.
