UPDATE: Police name woman who died in fire in Burnham Market

Police have this afternoon named the woman who died in a house fire in Burnham Market last week as 86-year-old Audrey Matthews.

A Norfolk Police spokesman also said that the fire is not being treated as suspicious and the case is being handed over to the coroner's office.

Emergency services attended a property in Church Walk shortly before 2.50pm on Thursday after concerns were raised for the welfare of the occupant and reports of a fire at the property.

The woman was discovered at the address and attempts were made to resuscitate her but she died at the scene.
