A body has been found by police investigating the disappearance of a Polish woman from a County Durham farm.

Danuta Domagalska, 27, was last seen at New Moor Farm, near Darlington, on 6 August.

A specialist search team discovered female remains in a shallow grave close to the farm on Saturday.

No formal identification has as yet been made, and a post-mortem examination has failed to establish a cause of death.

Ms Domagalska, who lived in a cottage near the farm with her husband and brother, was reported missing to police after she failed to turn up for work.

The brother, Piotr Lawniczak, disappeared shortly afterwards, and the 31-year-old was found hanged in woodland on Wednesday.

Her husband, Marcin Domagalski, has been working with police as a witness.

A Durham Police spokesman said: "The investigation is still ongoing surrounding the tragic events of the past two weeks."
