Bedfordshire Police are investigating the death of a woman in the 30s found dead at her home in Hockcliffe.

Officers were called to a property in Manor Road just after 5pm after the Ambulance Service reported a sudden death pf the woman 

Police say she had been found dead inside the house and a subsequent post-mortem has been unable to ascertain the cause of death.
