Officers were called to the cathedral at about 11.50pm on Sunday (March 15) after a woman, aged in her 30s, was found unresponsive.

Paramedics attended and treated the woman, but she was pronounced dead at the scene.

A Home Office post mortem examination, held on Monday afternoon (March 16), established the woman’s cause of death as inconclusive but the death is not being treated as suspicious.

A file will be prepared for the coroner and formal identification will take place in due course.

A man in his 50s arrested at the scene in connection with the death has been released from police custody without charge and no further action will be taken.

A police cordon around the area has now been lifted.
