Two men have been arrested following the death of a woman in Slough.

The 49-year-old was found at an address on Long Readings Lane following a call to police on Sunday, June 6. 

Officers initially treated the death as unexplained but have now launched a murder investigation following the arrests of a 35-year-old man and a 49-year-old man, both from Slough, in connection with the death. 

Formal identification of the woman has yet to take place, but specially trained officers are working with the woman’s family and providing them support.
