Detective Superintendent Tariq Ali, from Cleveland Police, said: “A woman has been murdered in her home. At this stage of the investigation we are not able to say much more than this, other than that a team of dedicated officers and specialist staff are now working hard to get to the facts.

“When a murder takes place in our community, perhaps even near our own homes, we aren’t deaf to the fear and worry this causes. As soon as we can say more about this crime, we will say more, but please be assured that our neighbourhood teams are increasing patrols in the area and are out and about, happy to speak to anyone to offer reassurance and talk directly to local people.”
