'Murder' probe into body in river near Deeping ...

Lincolnshire Police are investigating a suspicious death after the body of a woman was found in the River Welland between Deeping St James and Crowland.

The news made the BBC national bulletins at noon today (Sunday) and by one-o-clock, BBC R4 said it was a "murder investigation".

Police closed the Deeping to Crowland road at the St James railway crossing soon after the body was discovered by a passer-by on Saturday lunchtime.

This afternoon (Sunday), the road is still blocked, with a police officer on duty at the railway crossing to prevent access by the public.

A post-mortem examination has been carried out on the body.

Meanwhile, there was a high level of police activity on Godsey Lane on Saturday afternoon, with a number of uniformed officers and three marked cars outside a private house. I do not know if the two incidents are linked.
