The family of a woman who died suddenly in Nottingham on Wednesday (12 February 2020) have joined the police in appealing for information to trace her movements.

The woman, who was found lying on the pavement on Abbotsford Drive shortly after 2am, has now been identified by police as 58-year-old Tasneem Grainger, of Carlton.

Police have confirmed that her death is not currently being treated as suspicious, although the events leading up to her death remain unexplained.

Paramedics treated Mrs Grainger at the scene but she was pronounced dead shortly after 3am on Wednesday.

In a statement her family said: "She was an extremely kind and generous woman to everyone, including her friends and family. She always saw the best in people.

"As a family we are keen to know her whereabouts leading up to her death."

Detective Inspector Ruby Burrow, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: "We are appealing for information to help us piece together Mrs Grainger's movements between 5pm and 11.20pm on Tuesday which is when she appears on CCTV footage on Abbotsford Drive.

"We are interested in speaking to anyone who interacted with her during these times and we'd urge them to please contact us.

"From CCTV footage we know that, before Mrs Grainger died, she was talking to someone wearing a parka jacket for quite some time at the location where her body was found.

"If you are that person then we'd urge you to please come forward and get in touch with us."

If you have any information please call Nottinghamshire Police on 101, quoting incident number 36 of 12 February 2020.

Mrs Grainger's family has asked for privacy at this difficult time.

A file is being prepared for the coroner.
