POLICE are investigating after a woman's body was found in a Hampshire home.

Forensic teams probing the incident in Picket Twenty, Andover, left the scene this morning.

The team took away evidence from the Picket Twenty Way property earlier today after the body of a woman was discovered there yesterday morning.

Police are still outside the property, which remains cordoned off.

Police have described the death as "unexplained" but have classed it as a "major incident".

The forensic team left the scene, taking evidence with them, but officers remain outside the house.

Police are yet to formally identify the body.

One resident who lives on Picket Twenty said: "I've seen them before walking past, and to say hello to, but I didn't know them by name.

"We keep ourselves to ourselves.

"We were still in bed when the police knocked on the door to ask us if we heard anything.

"It is a shock especially because I have children."
