Essex Police link two deaths in the county

Police investigating the death of a man on scaffolding in Essex this week have now found the body of a woman in a house and think the two are linked.

The woman - in her 40's - was discovered at Bramble Road in Benfleet early on Thursday after officers started searching for a missing person.

Her death's being treated as suspicious and she's not been formally identified yet.

A post mortem is due to be held today (Friday) to find out how the woman died.

The man's death is not being treated as suspicious and police say they're not looking for anyone else in connection with the deaths.
