“An area of Hope Street has been cordoned off whilst forensic experts search the area.
“We are still in the early stages of identifying the woman.
“I would also like to take this opportunity to urge anyone in the area who saw any suspicious activity recently to call me or one of the team. No matter how insignificant you feel the information you have is, I want to hear from you.
