A post-mortem examination is due to take place on the body believed to be that of missing Ascot millionairess Joanna Brown.

The body was discovered on Friday evening in dense woodland in Windsor Great Park.

On Friday, Mrs Brown's husband, Edinburgh-born Robert Brown, 46, appeared in court charged with her murder.

He was remanded in custody until Monday when he will appear at Reading Crown Court for a bail hearing.

A Thames Valley Police spokesman said: "Although a formal identification has not yet taken place, Joanna's family have been kept fully updated and continue to be supported by specially trained family liaison officers."

Mrs Brown was reported missing on Monday when a family member became concerned at not being able to contact her.

Mr Brown is also charged with preventing the coroner from holding an inquest by disposing of his wife's body.
