The body of a woman found in Nottingham is believed to be that of missing doctor Elizabeth Kinston, police have said.

The mother-of-two left her home in Beeston, Nottinghamshire, on 1 November.

The 37-year-old, who worked at the Moir Medical Centre, in Long Eaton, Derbyshire, gave birth to her second daughter in January.

She was still on maternity leave from her job as a GP.

Police said a post-mortem examination had taken place and her death was not being treated as suspicious.

'Tragic conclusion'

Det Insp Kev Broadhead said: "Formal identification has yet to be confirmed, but at this stage we do believe we have found Elizabeth."

He added: "It's a tragic conclusion to the inquiry and one we were all desperately hoping we would not have to face.

"On behalf of the force and of Elizabeth's family I would like to thank the hundreds, if not thousands of people, who helped in the search for Elizabeth, whether by sharing appeals on social media, distributing posters or getting out on the streets to search."

He said the "unprecedented response" had given her family "incredible strength".
