Kingswood body find: Dead woman 'may have been in crash'

A woman found dead in a road may have been hit by a vehicle, police say.

The woman's body was found in Hill Street, Kingswood, near Bristol, at about 00:45 GMT.

Officers said about an hour before the woman was found dead they received a call about a woman who was walking in the carriageway of the road.

Det Insp Louise Boyce said officers searched the area but could not find anyone. They said they were treating her death as "unexplained".

She said they were referring the matter to the Independent Police Complaints Commission as there had been police involvement before the woman's body was found.
