POLICE called to a house in Saffron Walden High Street after the body of a pensioner was found inside have confirmed they are not treating her death as suspicious.

The body of Irene Crone, 76, was discovered by relatives living just a few houses away at just before 3.30pm.

An ambulance arrived on the scene at 3.25pm and Mrs Crone was pronounced dead at the scene by an emergency care practitioner.

Police officers from Saffron Walden immediately sealed off the area and maintained a presence until 8pm on Thursday, when the result of the post mortem examination showed that there were no suspicious circumstances involved in Mrs Crone's death.

An Essex police spokesman said: "The initial results have led us to believe that she died from head injuries but that there are no suspicious circumstances involved in her death.

"An inquest will be opened in due course but it is too early to say when."

It is believed Mrs Crone lived alone.
