Five people suspected of drug supply and ‘involuntary manslaughter’ in connection with a woman’s death in Grantham have been released on police bail.

As previously reported, paramedics called the police to Eton Street in the town at 3.28pm on Tuesday, April 29.

One woman was in cardiac arrest and was taken to Grantham Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Three men aged 43, 46 and 46 as well as two women aged 41 and 47 were all arrested on drug supply and manslaughter offences.

Now they have all been released on police bail while officers investigate.
