Foul play ruled out in woman's city centre death

The death of a woman found at an apartment complex in Belfast city centre is no longer being treated as suspicious, the police have said.

The 49-year-old's body was found at Cooper's Court flats on Hill Street in the Cathedral Quarter on Friday morning.

Police had initially described the woman's death as suspicious but following the results of a post-mortem examination, this is no longer the case.

The cause of her death has not yet been established but police say they will continue to investigate the death.

Officers are to work alongside the Coroner's office.

Following the discovery of her body on Friday, police and forensic officers were called to the block of flats to examine the building as they searched for clues as to how she had died.

The police operation lasted for most of the day, but the area around the block of flats remained opened to the public.

Cooper's Court consists of one and two-bedroom flats and is run by Helm Housing which provides affordable accommodation for vulnerable people. The block has been operating for four years.
