A man has been charged with murder after the death of a woman who was assaulted in a Hull street.

Glenn Foster, 42, of Beverley Road in the city, is accused of killing 39-year-old Joanne Hemingway, police said.

Ms Hemingway suffered "serious injuries" outside a flat on Beverley Road at about 19:15 BST on Thursday.

A woman, 52, arrested on Friday has been released while inquiries continue and another woman, 34, has been released without charge.

Humberside Police said no further action against her was expected in connection with the death of Ms Hemingway, who died in hospital.

In a statement, Ms Hemingway's family said: "Joanne has been taken from us. It is so hard to put into words how we are all feeling.

"We will miss her for her dry, honest sense of humour, sometimes too honest for her own good.

"To the world she was one, but to us she was the world."

Det Ch Insp Alan Curtis, of Humberside Police, has appealed for witnesses.

He said: "Whilst we have spoken to a number of people, this incident is reported to have happened in a busy street with lots of people around, either on foot or in vehicles travelling up and down the road.

"If you were in the area around 19:00 on Thursday and saw anything which could help our investigation, please come forward."

Mr Foster is due to appear at Hull Magistrates' Court on Monday.
