Remains discovered near a recreation ground in Hampshire have been identified as those of a woman missing since April.

Following post-mortem tests, police said the body was Isobel Munro's.

Officers cordoned off an area of woodland in Barton-on-Sea after the remains were discovered by a member of the public on Tuesday morning.

The death of Ms Munro, who was 41 when she went missing, is being treated as unexplained.

She was last seen by her mother at their home in Latimers Close, Christchurch before getting into a taxi on 11 April.

Police said officers were still working to ascertain the exact circumstances of her death.
