A man has been charged with the murder of a woman on a city street.

Jodie Wilkinson, 27, suffered stab wounds when she was attacked by a group of men in Stanhope Street, Newcastle on Monday, and died in hospital.

David Waterston, 43, of Hamilton Place in the city, will appear before magistrates in Newcastle on Saturday.

Eight other people - aged between 18 and 43 - arrested in connection with the death have now been bailed pending further inquiries.

A 25-year-old man who was with her at the time was also injured and needed hospital treatment.
