MORE forensic tests will be carried out after the body of a woman was exhumed from a Silkstone graveyard on Friday.

South Yorkshire police say the body of a local woman in her 30s - who has not been identified out of respect for her family - was exhumed overnight on Thursday.

Detective Superintendent Dave Barraclough said: "The post mortem was undertaken in Sheffield today. Further forensics results are required."

South Yorkshire Police were instructed by the coroner to exhume the body of a woman buried in the graveyard at All Saints and St James Church, Silkstone.

It is part of an ongoing investigation to establish the cause of death of the woman who died in 2011.
