A police investigation into the death of a woman in Scratby continues after results from a post mortem were found to be inconclusive.
The woman, who was in her 60s, died in the early hours of Tuesday.
She was found at a large detached house in California Avenue and a post mortem was carried out yesterday (Wednesday).
Police said today that as a result of the inconclusive results they are still treating her death as unexplained and investigations will continue.
Neighbours in the quiet residential street, which sits just a stone's throw from the beach, said they were shocked and saddened by the news, after waking on Tuesday to find several police cars and vans parked outside their homes.
