Police were called to a sudden death of a woman in her 70s at around 4:40pm yesterday at an address on Fosdyke Green in Middlesbrough.

Detectives are treating the death as suspicious, a cordon is in place and forensic officers are on scene.

A man in his 40s from Middlesbrough has been arrested on suspicion of murder and is currently in police custody.

A postmortem is due to take place today to establish how the woman died.

Officers would like to hear from members of the public who may have seen anything suspicious.
