Police have said that they are no longer treating the death of a woman at a housing association property who died on Sunday afternoon as suspicious.

The 49-year-old's body was discovered in the back garden of a house on Heliers Drive in Salford - a home owned and managed by social landlord Guinness Northern Counties.

Police orginally treated the death as suspicious and arrested a 34-year-old woman and a 35-year-old man on suspicion of murder.

However, both have now been released without charge and Greater Manchester Police have declared the death not suspicious.

A spokesperson from Guinness Northern Counties said: “All reports of disturbance, anti-social behaviour or suspected illegal activity in any of our neighbourhoods is treated seriously, and given utmost priority.

"We offer our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Jacqueline Vogan-Lee, and are now working with neighbouring residents to offer any support needed . We continue to do everything we can to support the police in their investigations.”
