An inquest is due to be held into the death of a woman whose body was found in a university lake in Norwich in mysterious circumstances.

An angler spotted the body of 43 year-old Nomeda Pundziene, floating face-down in the broad at the University of East Anglia (UEA) on 1st August.

The condition of the body meant officers could not identify her for more than a week and it was unclear how she died.

An inquest into Ms Pundziene's death will be held in Norwich. It is expected to hear that a post-mortem examination found she drowned.

Ms Pundziene, a Lithuanian national, lived in Gertrude Road, Norwich.

Speaking at the time, Detective Inspector Richard Graveling, from Norwich CID, said he was trying to piece together her final movements.

He said: "Her family initially had no cause for concern when they did not see her for a number of days as they believed her to be staying elsewhere."

He said the family contacted police following media coverage of the discovery in the lake and the body was then identified.
