A British woman has died in Istanbul

Ex-BBC journalist Jacky Sutton, 50, is understood to have been found dead in a toilet at the city’s main airport. The circumstances are unclear.

The BBC understands she was the acting Iraq director for the Institute for War and Peace Reporting (IWPR) and had been travelling to Irbil, northern Iraq.

The Foreign Office said it was “providing consular assistance to the family at this time”.
