Woman's body found in underpass


The death of a woman whose body was found in an underpass is being treated as suspicious by police.

Officers were called to an address in Bay Drive, Bullbrook, Bracknell, Berkshire, just before 8am today where they discovered a body of a woman in her 20s.

She was declared dead at the scene by paramedics, according to Thames Valley Police.

Nearby roads have been closed to enable specialist police officers to examine the scene.

Superintendent Paul Hayles said: “The woman was found at an underpass near Bay Drive and we are yet to determine the circumstances of her death.

“We would urge anyone who was in or around the area in the early hours of this morning and may have seen anything to please contact us as a matter of urgency.”
