A woman has died following a fire in Gorleston on Friday morning.
Officers were called just before 9.10am to assist Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service following reports of a fire at an address in Cherwell Way.
A woman, aged in her 60s, was found inside the property but was sadly declared dead at the scene.
The woman’s death is being treated as unexplained but it is not believed to be suspicious at this time.
Norfolk Police are working with Norfolk Fire and Rescue Service to establish the circumstances leading up to the fire and a file will be prepared for the coroner ahead of an inquest which will take place in due course.
