Woman found dead inside Coventry house and man arrested

A man has been arrested after a woman's body was discovered at a house in Coventry.

The woman, who has yet to be formally identified, was found at an address on Awson Street, in the Stoke area of the city, just after 12:00 BST on Monday.

A post-mortem examination is due to be carried out in the next few days, police said.

The 28-year-old man from Coventry was arrested on suspicion of murder by officers in London.

He is due to be questioned by West Midlands Police later.

Det Insp Warren Hines said concerns had been raised about the house after a man raised the alarm at Bishopsgate police station in central London.

He said officers were not looking for anyone else in connection with the death, but appealed for witnesses to come forward.
