Woman's body found in man's death inquiry

Police investigating the death of a man found on scaffolding have found the body of a woman at a house in Essex.

The man was found outside a building on Clifftown Road in Southend early on Wednesday.

The woman was found dead during a search in Bramble Road, Benfleet, on Thursday after her family contacted police with concerns about her safety.

The woman's death is being treated as suspicious while the death of the man is not suspicious, police said.

A post-mortem examination was due to be held later to determine the cause of the woman's death.
