Man held over 'unexplained death' in Oxford

A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after the "unexplained death" of an elderly woman.

Police found the woman in her 80s dead at the property in The Link, Oxford after receiving reports from people fearing for her welfare shortly after 23:00 BST on Saturday.

A 58-year-old Oxford man remains in custody.

Thames Valley Police said a post-mortem examination will be carried out on Monday.

Det Ch Insp Ian Hunter said: "Although a man has been arrested, this is still very much being treated as an unexplained death investigation and we are unlikely to know more until the results of the post mortem."

Police have appealed for witnesses.
