A woman found dead in a Bournemouth flat was stabbed to death, an inquest has heard.

The body of Kuwaiti student Mashael Albasman, 25, was found on Sunday in a first-floor flat at a property on St Michael's Road.

An inquest which was opened and adjourned in Bournemouth earlier, heard the cause of death was stab wounds.

A man, 58, who was at the property, has been arrested on suspicion of murder and remains in custody.

Police were called to what they described as a "serious incident" shortly after noon on Sunday.

The man was known to the victim, said police, and suffered injuries that later needed hospital treatment.
