Detective Chief Inspector Craig Higgins said: “Our thoughts are with the family and friends of the woman who died and we’ll do all we can to support them at this very difficult time.

“I’d like to thank the local community for their help and patience while enquiries are carried out. There will be a continued police presence in the area but I want to reassure everyone, this is an isolated incident and there is no wider risk to the public. However, anyone who does have concerns can speak to officers.”
