An 18-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a woman's body was found in a house on Teesside.

The woman was discovered at an address on Parliament Road, Middlesbrough, at 03:35 BST on Saturday.

Officers have not been able to formally identify the woman, who was in her 20s and from overseas.

A post-mortem examination carried out late on Saturday found she died from injuries suffered in an assault.

Cleveland Police said it was working with other agencies to identify her and to contact any next of kin.
