The body of a woman was found in woodland this morning.

Police were called at 8.24am to an area of Epping Forest near Bury Road, Chingford, after the corpse was spotted by a horse rider.

Police believe the woman is in her 30s but said not all next of kin have been informed yet.

The Guardian understands the death is not being treated as suspicious at the moment.

Enquiries are ongoing.
