AN investigation into the death of a woman whose badly burnt body was found by a Cambridgeshire road is continuing today.

The grim discovery was made in a lay-by on the A1301 between the A505 junction and the M11 junction in Hinxton, near Duxford, at 3.30am on Wednesday.

An initial post mortem was carried out on the body at Addenbrooke's Hospital in Cambridge last night and more checks and tests were being carried out today.

Police are still unable to confirm a cause of death or the identity of the woman.
