Police are probing the death of a woman after her body was found this morning.
The female, aged in her 30s, was discovered at 7am on Bracken Bank Grove.
It is believed she was dressed in a tracksuit.
Her body, which was discovered in the pathway of an empty bungalow, has been covered by a tent for forensics officers to work behind a police cordon.
Locals say the body was found by a lady walking a dog.
Landlady of the Bracken Arms, Christine Berry, said there had been an 18th birthday party at the pub, last night, but the woman had not been a guest.
Christine said:”She was not dressed for a party. We have been told she was wearing a tracksuit.
“The party finished at 1am, way before the body was found this morning.”
Locals said police have been asking if they had seen a woman ‘running up and down’ last night.
Meanwhile, police are attending a property on nearby Crescent View. The female occupant of the house has gone missing, leaving her fire and lights on and the door wide open.
