The discovery of a woman's body in bushes is not being treated as suspicious, said West Yorkshire Police.

Police said the body was found by a member of the public at the rear of properties on Vernon Court in Keighley at about 15:55 BST on Sunday.

Det Ch Insp Steve Snow said: "A post-mortem examination has been completed and has confirmed this death was not suspicious.

"This appears to have been a tragic accident."

A file is to be passed to the coroner for further investigation, said police.

The woman had lived locally and was believed to have been in her 60s.
