A post-mortem examination on the 50-year-old, from Kendal, will take place within the next few days in a bid to establish the cause of death.

Detectives are continuing to question a 41-year-old local man arrested in connection with the incident.

Cumbria Police appealed for anyone who saw or spoke to the 50-year-old during the weekend prior to her death to contact the force.
