Woman Found Dead In Newcastle
A woman's been found dead at a house in Newcastle following reports of a break-in.
Officers were called to an address last night in Fordmoss Walk in West Denton.
They attended and found the body of a 45-year-old woman inside the address and are treating her death as suspicious.
Following enquiries a 35-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the incident and remains in custody.
