A MISSING woman found near to Mann Dam bridge close to Cleckheaton town centre had taken her own life, an inquest has heard.

Police were alerted to the 46-year-old's body on July 24 this year by a member of the public two days after she was reported missing from her home in Waltroyd Road, Cleckheaton.

After hearing evidence at the Huddersfield inquest yesterday, Coroner Martin Fleming concluded Tracey Bamford had taken her own life.
