A woman's death in Stoke-on-Trent is now being treated as suspicious.

Two men aged 44 and 59, arrested on Wednesday after the body was found at an address in Peascroft Road, Norton, remain in custody.

A post-mortem examination is to be carried out later and the house in Peascroft Road remains cordoned off.
