UK murder inquiry launched after body found on queen's Sandringham estate
Norfolk police say they are investigating the death of a woman whose body was found on New Year’s Day.

POLICE IN ENGLAND have launched a murder investigation after a woman’s body was discovered on the queen’s estate in Norfolk.

Norfolk police said earlier today that the woman’s remains were discovered in an area of woodland at Anmer by a member of the public at around 4pm on New Year’s Day.

A post-mortem is due to be carried out on the remains later today. Police have not released any information about the identity of the body. It is believed to have lain there for some time.

The area has been sealed off for a technical examination.

Anmar village is part of the British monarch’s Sandringham estate, one of the properties at which the royal family traditionally holidays. Members of the family attended recent Christmas and New Year’s services at St Mary Magdalene Church on the estate.
