A woman from Northumberland who killed her boyfriend has been jailed for life.

50-year-old Clare Humble attacked 49-year-old Peter Hedley with household items including a table top and broken crockery during an attack at the home they shared last October.

She then disposed of his body in woods.

Mr Hedley's burnt body was found by dogs being walked in parkland at Newburn Riverside Park.

Humble, of Burdon Terrace in Bedlington, was found guilty of murder at Newcastle Crown Court.

She must serve a minimum of 20 years.
