A woman has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a man was stabbed to death in Dorset.

Police and ambulance crews were called to a home in Park Road on Portland at about 01:30 GMT after a member of the public raised the alarm.

A man, thought to be in his 40s, was pronounced dead after they arrived. A 44-year-old woman, from Devon, was arrested and remains in police custody.

Forensic experts are carrying out an examination of the scene.

Det Ch Insp Kevin Connolly said: "At this time we believe this is a domestic incident.

"Anyone who saw or heard anything unusual or suspicious in or around Park Road earlier this morning or late last night should call Dorset Police urgently.

"There is also a Tesco supermarket near to the address and I would urge any staff working through the night to think carefully about anything they may have witnessed.

"Any information could help us with this investigation."
