Police have launched a murder investigation following the discovery of the body of a 17-year-old girl in a house in Wiltshire.

A 17-year-old boy has been arrested on suspicion of murder.

Paramedics were called to Springfield Drive, Calne on Friday afternoon where they discovered the body of the girl shortly before 3.15pm.

Police secured the crime scene and arrested a 17-year-old boy a short time later in Chippenham.

A forensic post mortem is being carried out but the cause of death is not expected to be released until tomorrow.

‘They are receiving support from specially trained officers and we will continue to do everything we can to help them come to terms with what has happened.

‘This investigation is still in its early stages but I would like to reassure the local community that a robust police response was launched yesterday and will continue in the days to come.
