    Police are treating her death as “suspicious” and have arrested two men on suspicion of her murder. They continue to investigate the death in Wells, Somerset, and are appealing for anyone who was in the area with CCTV, dashcam or phone footage to come forward.

    Avon and Somerset Constabulary were called to the address by the ambulance service just after 2.30pm on Sunday.
