The discovery was made shortly before midnight by a police officer.

THREE PEOPLE HAVE been arrested in the United Kingdom on suspicion of murder after a woman’s body was found at a school.

Pupils were due to return to class today after the Christmas holidays.

The woman is believed to be aged in her 20s. Her next of kin has been informed.

The discovery was made on the grounds of a primary school in Shrewsbury by a police officer shortly before midnight yesterday after ‘concerns were raised for the safety of a local woman’.

West Merica Police have confirmed that two men, aged 32 and 39, and a woman, aged 31, have been arrested.

A forensic examination of the scene where the woman’s remains were found is being carried out, with the school expected to remain closed until Wednesday.
