Police watchdog called in over handling of death of woman in Kidlington

12:06pm Friday 30th May 2014

THAMES Valley Police has called in the Independent Police Complaints Commission (IPCC) to look at its handling of an unexplained death of a woman last year.

Caron Kiernan died aged 54 in Charlton-on-Otmoor, near Kidlington, on December 19 2013.

The force has been forced to refer itself to the IPCC because Ms Kiernan had recent contact with the police before she died.

The date for an inquest into her death has not been set.
