Police searching for missing woman Wendy Simms have found a body in water at Maxey Pits near Peterborough.

Wendy, 52, of South Parade, Peterborough, who used to live in Doddington, was reported missing to police on Monday and a search was launched to find her.

It was the second time she had gone missing in three months - In October she sparked a major search effort by residents in Doddington after she disappeared from her then address in Ancaster Way, Doddington.

She was eventually found by a farm dog in a farm’s conservation area nearly 30 hours after she was last seen.

The death is not being treated as suspicious and has been passed to the coroner.
