A 19-year-old man has been charged with the murder of a woman found dead in Middlesbrough.

The body of a woman in her 20s was discovered in a house on Parliament Road early on Saturday.

She has not been formally identified, but police believe she was originally from Eritrea in the Horn of Africa and have contacted someone thought to be a family member.

The man is due to appear at Teesside Magistrates' Court later.
