Police were trying to discover the identity of a woman whose body remained undiscovered in one of central London's most popular parks for up to three weeks. The dead woman was found by a group of children playing in dense shrubbery near the Queen Mary rose garden in Regent's Park on Wednesday. The woman was in a sitting position propped up against a tree.

Police have ruled out foul play although a post-mortem examination yesterday failed to establish the cause of death. The woman was white, about 5ft 5in, slim with brown hair. She wore a black waistcoat and mauve tracksuit bottoms and was believed to be in her twenties. She had had recent dental work.
