Paramedics found a woman in her 40s. She was pronounced dead a short time later.

She has been named by Suffolk Police as 43-year-old Donna Price of New Cheveley Road,Newmarket.

A post-mortem examination completed on August 8 concluded Mrs Price's injuries were consistent with a fall from a height. Specialist trained officers are supporting Mrs Price's family and circumstances surrounding her death are currently being investigated.
