POLICE are investigating whether a body found in woods in Bolton is a Scottish woman.
Officers are trying to identify the woman, who was found near Manchester Road, next to the River Croal at Raikes Clough, Burnden, on Thursday.
A police spokesman said there had been no significant developments in the case and they are continuing to investigate several lines of inquiry.
A number of items were found at the scene, including a train ticket, from which the ink had washed off, and a timetable for the Edinburgh to Manchester Airport train line.
It is believed the woman’s body had been there for a number of weeks and a post-mortem examination proved inconclusive.
