Gardaí investigating the death of a woman in Wexford say her death was the result of a tragic accident.

The body of the woman in her early 50s was discovered in her home in the Cluain Dara estate in Wexford shortly after 7.30pm last night.

Results of a post-mortem examination carried out this afternoon ruled out foul play and found the woman died as a result of injuries sustained in a fall.

An investigation file will be completed for the coroner.
