The death of a woman who went into cardiac arrest at a Stevenage property on Sunday is not being treated as suspicious by police.

The ambulance service received a call at 9.25am to reports of a woman – in her 50s – who had gone into cardiac arrest at an address in Southwark Close.

An ambulance, rapid response vehicle, ambulance officer and a hazardous area response team were all sent to assist, but the woman was sadly pronounced dead at the scene.

Police were also called out by the ambulance service in relation to the unexplained death, and a spokeswoman said: “The death is not being treated as suspicious and a report is being prepared for the coroner.”

Later the same morning a 57-year-old man was found dead at a flat in Harrow Court, with police describing the unrelated incident as unexplained.
