A woman's body has been found face down in a lake in Hampshire.

Police said the woman, who was fully clothed, had been in the water near Wellstead Way in Hedge End for several hours before she was found on Saturday.

Officers are investigating the circumstances surrounding her death but do not believe it was suspicious.

A post-mortem examination on the woman, who was aged in her early 20s to 30s, will take place in the coming days.

Det Insp Justin Gale, who is leading investigation, said the area was popular with locals, especially dog walkers, and asked anyone with information to come forward.
