CAMBRIDGESHIRE police have appealed for help to try and identify the woman whose badly burned body was found by a road yesterday.

MORE tests were being carried out today on the body of a woman whose badly burnt body was found by a Cambridgeshire road.

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.
