Slough woman murder suspect quizzed further

Police have been given more time to question a 35-year-old man arrested on suspicion of murder after a woman was found dead at a property in Berkshire.

Her body was discovered by police at Lowestoft Drive, Haymill, Slough, just before midday on Monday.

The man was arrested at the scene and remains in custody. The dead woman has not yet been identified, but her next of kin have been informed.

It is not yet known how she died, but tests are being carried out later.

Thames Valley Police has been granted an additional 12 hours to question the man, who is thought to have been known to the victim.

Supt Simon Bowden said he wanted to reassure the public "that everything is being done to work out the exact circumstances of this incident".

"At the moment, there is no information to suggest there is any threat to the wider public but we have a number of officers patrolling in the area," he added.

Police said a scene watch will remain at the property while investigations are carried out.
