A man has been arrested on suspicion of manslaughter after a woman died in hospital.
 
Police were called to an address in Coronation Drive, Leysdown, on Sunday morning following reports of concern for the welfare of a woman in her 60s.
 
Paramedics treated the pensioner, who was said to not be breathing, at the scene and then took her to Medway Maritime Hospital, where she later died.

A 63-year-old man from Sheppey has been arrested and bailed to Sunday, May 28.
 
It has been suggested the woman, known locally as Linda Frost, may have suffered carbon monoxide poisoning but neither police nor the ambulance service confirmed this.
 
It is believed she was originally from Bean.
 
Ruth Blake, who knew Linda from her involvement in the Harvel WI's archive group, paid tribute to her.
 
She said: "Linda has always been there and was always ready to lend a hand.
 
"It's such sad news.
 
"She was a lovely, lovely lady and she was such a help to me when I lost my husband.
"I just can't believe it - it's such a shock."
 
Police said officers are investigating the circumstances surrounding her death and inquiries are ongoing.
