Cambridgeshire police confirmed this morning that investigations into the sudden death of a woman in Ely had determined that there was no foul play.

A team of forensic investigators joined officers at a property in Lisle Lane shortly after 3pm on Friday at the request of ambulance crews.

A spokesman for the constabulary said that their investigations had not revealed anything suspicious and the matter would now be dealt with by the coroner.

She said: “We were called by the ambulance service at just before 3.10pm with reports of a sudden death of a woman in her 40s at a property in Lisle Lane, Ely.

“The death is not being treated as suspicious and the matter has been passed to the coroner.”

A spokesman for the East of England Ambulance Service said: “We were called just before 3pm to reports of a woman in her 40s who had fallen down a flight of stairs.

“An ambulance and paramedic officer were dispatched to the scene but the woman was sadly pronounced dead on their arrival.”
