The death of a woman in a parking area next to a south of Scotland road is being treated as "unexplained".

Christine Hilton, 62, of Dalbeattie, was found dead in her grey Vauxhall Astra next to the A762 north of Laurieston on Tuesday afternoon.

Det Insp Dean Little said the car - registration KD06 YZT - had been seen in the same area a day earlier.

He said they were keen to establish when it had arrived at the location and appealed for witnesses.
