A post-mortem completed the day after the 30-year-old's body was found was unable to establish the cause of death, and it still remains unexplained some five months on.

A local man in his 30s, who was known to Miss Goacher, was arrested during the course of the investigation but was never charged.

Police did not confirm why the man was arrested.

Miss Goacher was a popular photographer who worked with local festivals and bands as well as being employed as a front of house supervisor at West Kent College.
