The sudden death of a woman aged in her 90s is not being treated as suspicious.
Norfolk police found the woman's body at her home in Highfield Avenue, Swaffham at 11.30pm on Friday (October 18), but were unable to establish how she died.
A Home Office post mortem examination took place on Sunday.
A spokesman said: "Whilst further tests will be carried out to establish the cause of death, it is not being treated as suspicious.
"A file will be prepared for the coroner ahead of an inquest which will take place in due course."
