A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a woman’s body was discovered in a park yesterday (Mon).

Forensic teams were last night scouring bushes for clues after the victim was found in the morning.

Police said a man has been arrested on suspicion of murder and is in custody.

Officers have cordoned off the street surrounding the spot in Easton, Bristol, and detectives were quizzing the suspect.

Avon and Somerset Constabulary said they are treating the death as unexplained, pending a post mortem examination, but a murder inquiry has been launched.

SWNS_BRISTOL_MURDER_03A spokesman confirmed that a mandatory referral was made to the Independent Police Complaints Commission as there was police contact prior to the body being found.

One resident said there were around 40 officers searching nearby streets, using sticks to scour through bushes.
