THE body of a woman from Malvern was found at an address in the town this week. 

Officers set up a cordon outside an address in Brook Farm Drive on April 6 after responding to concerns for safety.

When they arrived, they found the woman, in her 40s, was dead.

West Mercia Police said the death is not being treated as suspicious, though officers remained at the scene for most of the day.
