Police have said a body found on an allotment site in Leicester is that of missing Cardiff woman Sameena Imam.

She was last seen in Coventry on Christmas Eve and two brothers have been charged with her murder.

Formal identification is due to take place on Wednesday after the body was found on Friday off Groby Road.

West Midlands Police said they are awaiting toxicology test results as part of a post-mortem examination to establish the cause of death.

The test results could take several weeks.

Roger Cooper, 40, of Coventry, and David Cooper, 38, of Leicester, have been charged with her murder.

They have been remanded in custody with a provisional trial date set for the end of June.

Ms Imam, 34, was last seen outside wholesaler Costco in Coventry at about 16:00 GMT on 24 December.

She was visiting the store as part of her job as a regional marketing manager for Costco.
