A property on a Spalding street remains cordoned off, potentially linked to police investigations into the death of a woman who was hit by a train yesterday morning (Saturday).

The house on Havelock Street was taped off and under police guard this morning (Sunday) after a woman’s body was found by the tracks near the railway footbridge south of Winsover Road level crossing.
