A woman's body has been discovered in a street in Staffordshire.

Officers were called to Hazelslade, Cannock, at about 04:10 GMT following the discovery of the body of Amanda Appleton, who was from the town.

The 36-year-old's death is "being treated as unexplained at this stage," a spokesman for Staffordshire Police said.
