A 23-year-old man from the Hull area has been arrested on suspicion of murder following an incident at a property in Milldane, Hull, this morning. (Tuesday, February 27)

We were called at 9.30am, following reports a 21-year-old woman had suffered serious injuries. Sadly, she passed away a short time later.

Our thoughts are with her family, who have been informed and are being supported by specialist officers.

We are now appealing for anyone who was in the area between 8am and 9.30am, who saw or heard anything unusual, to get in touch.
