A murder investigation is under way after the death of a woman whose body was found in Norwich.

Police were called to a property in Godric Place in the city at 14:30 BST on Saturday after reports of concern for the safety of a woman inside.

Officers found her body when they arrived. It is believed the woman had been subjected to a "sustained assault", Norfolk Police said.

Two men and a woman were arrested at an address in Windsor Road, Lowestoft.

The woman has since been released under investigation while the two men remain in custody.

Det Insp Neil Stewart said there were "a significant number of lines of enquiry", and that officers were doing house-to-house enquiries in the local area.

A post-mortem examination found the cause of the woman's death still needed further investigation, but that she appeared to have been the victim of an assault.
