Man, 33, released after death of pregnant woman

Kimberley Russell Post-mortem tests on Ms Russell have proved inconclusive

A 33-year-old man arrested after a body was discovered at a house in Telford has been released on police bail.

Kimberley Russell, 27, was found dead by officers in Brookside on Monday after a "concern for welfare" call.

Police said they were waiting for the result of further tests after a post-mortem examination proved inconclusive.

The man, arrested on suspicion of murder on Tuesday, is now being cared for by mental health services, West Mercia Police said.

Detectives said they were still pursuing other lines of inquiry and were looking to confirm how Ms Russell, who was pregnant at the time, died.

Anyone with any information about the incident is urged to call West Mercia Police on 101 or contact Crimestoppers.
