A man in his 60s from Weybridge has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a woman was found dead in Walton-on-Thames, Surrey.

The woman, in her 50s, was found by police when they forced their way into a property in Trafalgar Drive on Wednesday, following a report of concern for her safety.

A post-mortem examination was carried out but the result was inconclusive.

The man has been released on bail until 25 July while investigations continue.
