Police have released the name of a West Yorkshire woman who was found dead in a lane in Cumbria.

The body of Rose-Marie Valente, 49, from Woodside Crescent in Bingley, was discovered on Black Bull Lane, Brough, Kirkby Stephen, on Monday.

Results of a post-mortem examination have not yet been released. Police said the investigation was continuing.

A 48-year-old man, arrested on suspicion of murder, has since been bailed pending further inquiries.

Ms Valente's family said in a statement: "Rose was a loving and doting Mother and Nanna.

"She was loved and will be greatly missed by the family and her friends."

Cumbria Police appealed for anyone who saw or spoke to her between Friday 24 February and Sunday 26 February, or saw a silver 4x4 vehicle on the Sunday evening or Monday morning in the Brough and Kirkby Stephen area, to contact the force.
