Police at the scene

A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a woman's body was discovered in Brighton.

Police found the 46-year-old after a man handed himself into John Street police station at 6am on Thursday.

She'd been stabbed several times at a house in Sandgate Road.

The road was sealed off and officers began house-to-house enquiries. People living nearby were also questioned as they set off for work.

Detective Chief Inspector Till Sanderson, from the Surrey and Sussex Major Crime Team, leading the investigation, said: "A 51-year-old man from Seaford has been arrested on suspicion of murder.

"We would like to hear from anyone who saw or heard anything suspicious in or around Sandgate Road between 6pm on Wednesday and 6am on Thursday.

"It appears that both suspect and victim were known to each other and we are not currently seeking anyone else in connection with the incident."
