Daily Echo: Police to meet residents after woman's body found among bins Police to meet residents after woman's body found among bins

POLICE investigating the death of a woman whose body was found among bins in Southampton are meeting with residents this evening.

The woman was discovered by refuse workers doing their rounds in Millbrook Road East, near a block of flats.

To offer reassurance to residents in the area, officers from the Regents Park and Freemantle Beat team will today be holding a special beat surgery. A police van will be stationed near the Freemantle Business Centre between 4pm and 6pm.

PC Bethan Wood, of Shirley Police, said: “We’re keen to reassure residents and we would encourage anybody with any concerns to come and talk to us.”

As previously reported, officers set up a cordon on Monday while forensic teams carried out their investigations following the grim discovery.

It sparked chaos and confusion among local workers trying to get through rush-hour traffic to their jobs in Mountbatten Business Centre.

Police and paramedics arrived at 8.30am and closed the road for about four hours while they carried out enquiries. Nearby Bourne Road and Edith Haisman Close were also blocked off.

Police are treating the death as “unexplained” with a post-mortem examination set to take place in the next few days.

Whats that saying? " shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted"

Perhaps there have been too many cuts and the police can't cope with the drip drip drip effect
