The pavement in front of Nando's, where the woman was found, and a number of other shops was sealed off.

It is believed the woman may have been sleeping rough for a number of nights.

Flowers have been left in tribute to the woman in a doorway next door to Nando's. A message left with the flowers reads: "RIP Hayley. Deeply shocked. Thinking of you at peace finally."
