Thames Valley Police has said the death is being treated as unexplained, but not suspicious.

A passer-by told the Oxford Mail that there were three police cars outside the hotel, near the Botley Road railway bridge, as well as an ambulance.
A spokeswoman for Thames Valley Police said officers had been called at 12.29pm today by someone at the hotel.
The River Hotel declined to comment.
