The death of a woman in Colchester has been deemed non-suspicious by police.

Police were called by the ambulance service shortly after 7.45pm on Tuesday (September 12) with reports the 37-year-old had been found deceased at an address in Avignon Close.

Neighbours named the woman as Cheryl Birdsall.

Detectives launched an investigation into the circumstances surrounding her death and a 43-year-old man from Colchester was arrested on suspicion of murder.

He has now been released without charge and faces no further action.

A post mortem examination was carried out yesterday.

Although no formal cause of death has yet been recorded, based upon preliminary results, police say the death is no longer being treated as suspicious.

A file will be prepared for the coroner.
