A woman aged in her 90s has been found dead at a house in Birmingham.

West Midlands Ambulance Service said it was called to a "medical emergency" on Chingford Road, Kingstanding, at about 18:40 GMT on Sunday.

A 57-year-old man, believed to be known to the victim, who was arrested on suspicion of murder, has been released without charge, police said.

A post-mortem examination on Monday concluded that the woman's death was not suspicious.

Catherine Murray, who lives in the area, said the woman "was just a frail, old lady that you would see going shopping every now and again".

"She really kept herself to herself. Quiet - but always said hello when I saw her. Just a nice lady."

Patricia Bates, another resident, said: "She's lived up here for years and years, same as myself. Probably lived here all her life, for all I know."
