Woman's death in Belfast is no longer treated as suspicious

Forensic science officers Police initially described the death as suspicious but this is no longer the case

The death of a woman in Belfast city centre is no longer being treated as suspicious, the police have said.

Her body was found at Cooper's Court flats on Hill Street in the city's Cathedral Quarter on Friday.

Police initially described the 49-year-old's death as suspicious but after a post mortem examination, officers are no longer treating the case as such.

The cause of her death has not yet been established and police will continue to investigate to find out how she died.

Officers are to work alongside the Coroner's office.

When the body was discovered on Friday, officers in forensic suits were called to the block of flats to examine the scene.

The police operation lasted for most of the day, but the area around the block of flats remained opened to the public.
