A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a woman's body was found in a Birmingham tower block.

Police were called after the 51-year-old was found collapsed at a flat in Century Tower, Dollery Drive, Edgbaston.

Emergency services pronounced her dead at the scene on Tuesday morning.

The 39-year-old man was arrested in Ladywood just after 19:00 GMT and detained in police custody.

West Midlands Police said a post-mortem examination and formal identification would take place on Wednesday.

Det Insp Ian Iliffe said: "We urge anyone who has information to help our investigation to come forward at the earliest opportunity.

"At this stage it is still unclear when the lady may have died and we await the results of a post-mortem later to determine the circumstances."
