A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a 59-year-old man was found dead at a flat in Stourbridge.

Police found the door of the flat in Forge Road open and the injured man, who has not been named, inside. He was later pronounced dead at the scene.

A concerned neighbour had raised the alarm at about 19:00 GMT on New Year's Day.

A 33-year-old man was later arrested at another address in Forge Road and remains in police custody.

Det Insp Martin Slevin, from West Midlands Police CID, said: "At this stage it appears the offence has happened inside the flat and a forensic post-mortem examination will take place in due course."
