Robert Nobbs, Conservative district councillor for Newmarket East, said he was “taken aback” by the news.
“It’s absolutely horrendous news,” he said. “It’s horrible to hear of something as dreadful as this happening in this area, or anywhere for that matter.
“It’s totally saddening for everybody, everyone who knows her, and those who don’t.
"There’s far too much of this happening, not just in Newmarket, but everywhere in the country. You hear about these incidents all too often.”
The woman’s next of kin have been informed of her death.
