Forsenic police are at a home in Shinfield
this afternoon after a woman’s body was found in the early hours of this morning. Although Thames Valley Police have arrested
a man they are appealing for witnesses to come forward. In a statement, the force said they were called
to Parker Close around 5.40am on Boxing Day, Wednesday, December 26 after the body of a woman in her

on suspicion of murder and is currently in police custody. A scene watch is in place in the area while

the woman’s death. “I would like to hear from anyone who saw
or heard anything unusual in Parker Close earlier today and would encourage anyone with
