A 36-year-old man has been charged with murder following the death of a woman in Yeovil.

Police were called to Tudor Court in Manor Road, on Tuesday, following reports of a woman being assaulted.

Paramedics treated her at the property in the Hendford area of the town, but she died at the scene.

Gobinath Vellasamy, from Yeovil, has been charged with her murder and is due before South Somerset Magistrates later.

Police said they were unable to release the victim's name as they were still trying to contact her next-of-kin.
