Update: Police identify body of woman washed up on Burnham beach

Police have identified the woman whose body was washed up on Burnham-On-Sea beach last weekend.

A beach walker found the body next to the jetty at around 10am last Saturday, prompting police to seal off the area as they investigated the discovery.

A post mortem on Tuesday confirmed the body was a woman and, on Friday, police said the identity was now known.

Police spokeswoman Cath Foster told "Her identity is now known and efforts are underway to confirm this information."

Officers investigating the case say they are "keeping an open mind" on the cause of the death.
