A post-mortem examination on the body of a woman recovered from a lake at the University of East Anglia (UEA) in Norwich has proved inconclusive, police have said.

The body was found face down in the water by an angler on Thursday morning.

Further tests are now needed to establish the cause of death.

Police said the woman's identity was not known, though she was not linked to any known missing people cases in Cambridgeshire, Norfolk, or Suffolk.

UEA officials have also so far accounted for all students, visitors and staff.

The man-made lake, known as the UEA Broad, is at the southern edge of the campus and is in an area popular with dog-walkers and joggers. Swimming is "strictly prohibited" the university said.

The immediate area remains cordoned off while investigations continue.
