A man who was arrested following the death of a woman in West Sussex has been released on police bail.

The woman, in her 30s, was found unconscious at a property in Orme Road, Worthing, on Friday, after a call to police.

Paramedics tried to resuscitate her but she was pronounced dead.

A post-mortem examination was inconclusive and more tests are to be carried out to establish the cause of death.

A Sussex Police spokesman said the woman's death was being treated as unexplained.

The 39-year-old man who was arrested has been bailed until 14 November, pending further inquiries.

The arrested man and the woman knew each other, the spokesman said.

He added: "We are trying to establish what happened and are following up all possible lines of inquiry."
