A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder after a woman was found by police with fatal injuries.

Officers went to an off-licence on Marsh House Lane, Warrington at about 22:20 BST on Tuesday after concerns were raised about a man there.

They then went to an address in nearby St Elphins Close where they found the woman, who later died in hospital.

Cheshire Police said a 54-year-old man was "assisting officers" with a murder investigation.
