Two women have been arrested as part of a murder investigation after a woman was killed in Portsmouth.

Officers were called to an address on Toronto Road at 23:58 GMT on Saturday, where an injured woman was found.

The 36-year-old died at the scene. A post-mortem examination is due to take place later.

A 43-year-old woman has been arrested on suspicion of murder and a 52-year-old woman on suspicion of assisting an offender.

Both remain in police custody and are being questioned by officers.

Det Ch Insp David Brown, from Hampshire Constabulary, appealed for any witnesses who may have seen anything suspicious to come forward.

He added: "If you have any information, no matter how small it may seem, please speak to us and tell us what you know.

"Two people, both from Portsmouth, have been arrested in connection with this incident."
