A post-mortem examination is due to be carried out on the body of a woman found on a Suffolk beach yesterday morning.
Police were called to Shingle Street, between Orford and Bawdsey at about 9.55am after the body was found by two members of the public.
The woman, who has not been identified but was described as “elderly” was discovered on the shore opposite the Martello tower.
Her death is not thought to have been suspicious but the coroner is due to carry out an examination in due course to establish the course of death. Until, then her death will be treated as unexplained.
Meanwhile, police are continuing with their own enquiries and are trying to establish the woman’s identity and contact her next of kin.
