a serving police community support officer whose body was found in woodland died from "significant head injuries", police said.

The body of Julia James, 53, was found in Akholt Wood, Snowdown, near Dover, on Tuesday.

Kent Police said hundreds of officers were working on the murder inquiry but no motive or suspects had been found.

A post-mortem examination carried out on Thursday concluded she died from a blunt force trauma, police said.

Ms James, whose body was found a few hundred yards from her house, had been taking her dog for a walk when she was killed. The pet was found unharmed at the scene.
