Police await Joanna Yeates' post-mortem results

Police investigating the death of Bristol landscape architect Joanna Yeates say it is too early to confirm how she died.

The snow-covered body of the 25-year-old was discovered by a couple out walking their dogs in Longwood Lane, Failand, on Christmas Day.

Miss Yeates, from Clifton, had not been seen since she was filmed on CCTV at a Tesco store on 17 December.

On Monday, her family visited the scene where her body was found.

Ch Supt Jon Stratford of Avon and Somerset Police says a post-mortem is being carried out and the results are expected to be released on Tuesday.
