Police have launched a murder inquiry after a woman's body was found in a house in a town.

Cordons have been put up outside a house in Exning Road in Newmarket after officers were called at 9.55am on Tuesday.

Paramedics were also called, but the victim, a woman in her 40s, was declared dead at the scene.

Suffolk Police said two men, a 47-year-old and a 38-year-old, had been arrested on suspicion of murder.

Both men have been taken to Martlesham Police Investigation Centre for questioning.

Four police cars and two vans could be seen outside the property while a large tent was also put up outside.

Two police cordons are in place within Exning Road as police inquiries continue.

Detectives said they were treating the case as an isolated incident however they realised it would understandably cause concern in the local area.

They said more police would be on duty and members of the public should approach officers to discuss any concerns they might have.
