The death of a woman whose body was found in the grounds of a Shropshire junior school is no longer being treated as murder, police have said.

The woman, in her 20s, was discovered late Sunday night at Harlescott Junior School in Shrewsbury.

A post-mortem examination failed to establish the cause of death. Further tests are due to be carried out.

Three people arrested on suspicion of murder were later questioned on suspicion of obstructing the coroner.

West Mercia said the two men and a woman, all from the Shrewsbury area, had been released on police bail.

A force spokesman said: "We are not currently treating this as a murder inquiry.

"However, we are still keeping an open mind around the events leading up to the woman's death and we will be following up on a number of lines of inquiry to establish these events."

Police have finished a forensic examination of the scene and the school has reopened.
