Police say a teenage woman found dead in a burnt out car in north Dorset was probably the victim of a "tragic accident''.

The body of the 19-year old from Shaftesbury was found at Hartgrove on Stalbridge Common yesterday morning, after firefighters had been called out to reports of a car on fire at 9am.

A spokesman for Dorset police said: "A police investigation involving crime scene investigators and other specialist officers and staff indicates that this was a tragic accident and the circumstances surrounding the incident are still under investigation."
