West Midlands Police have launched an investigation after the body of a woman was found inside a Black Country flat.

Officers forced entry to a maisonette in Wyndmill Crescent – on the Charlemont Farm estate in West Bromwich – at around 2pm on New Years Eve where the discovery was made.

A forensic post mortem examination is scheduled to take place on Wednesday to determine the precise cause of death.
