An Avon and Somerset police spokesman said: “Despite the best efforts of officers, the woman was sadly pronounced deceased at around 5.20pm.
“While formal identification has not yet taken place, her next of kin has been informed and our thoughts are with them at this time.”
DI Neil Meade said: “Our thoughts are with the woman’s family during this time and we would like to reassure them and the local community that our MCIT will carry out a full and thorough investigation to establish the facts.
“Residents can expect to see an increased police presence in the area over the next few days, but I would like to reassure them that, at this stage, we believe there is no wider risk to the public and this is an isolated incident.”
